Gift 4 Film Festival Bonus: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?

Here is an argument in the affirmative: click here.

Post your thoughts below of the Christmas legitimacy of Die Hard.

That blog was hilarious! I love the comparison to It's a Wonderful Life and the other movies listed. Who wrote that blog?

To me, Die Hard is not a Christmas movie. I don't get the "warm and fuzzy" feeling after watching it like I do with most Christmas movies.

Of course it is. There's a Christmas party, Christmas decorations, Christmas music, and it happens on Christmas eve. Plus the explosions are like a giant light show.
