    Die Hard is a Christmas movie

    Why is this so hard for people to understand?
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    Die Hard is a Christmas movie until you find out at the end that Bruce Willis was dead the whole time.

    Re: Die Hard is a Christmas movie

    The end song is Andy Williams’ Christmas classic “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year.”

    It actually has more to do with Christmas than “It’s A Wonderful Life.”

    Agree that’s it’s not even a debate.

    If you're going by what he says, it's a western.

    The song with the line about "scary ghost stories". Got it. It's a western ghost story.

    (btw, I agree that it's a Christmas movie, but I want to argue.)

    Watched the uncensored version on IFC the other night. I guess I had been used to the censored version. Lots of f bombs and some nice gratuitous nudity.

    I prefer this version

    No, the end song is "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", by Vaughn Monroe.

    Which does not mention Christmas even once. That's no more a Christmas song than Jingle Bells or Winter Wonderland.

    Not only is Die Hard a Christmas movie, but Lethal Weapon is as well.

    You are correct, sir. My apologies for remembering the wrong Christmas song, but the point still stands.
