I say its a Christmas movie, thus worthy of being watched after putting our tree up. She disagrees and can't stand Bruce Willis.

It ends with let it snow as the credits scroll.

I was just having this convo with my other half. She said it wasn't, we watched it and recanted her statement on denying Die Hard its rightful place among holiday greats such as Its a Wonderful Life and Elf.

Excellent movie and one of my faves. I know that it's been pushed as a Christmas movie and obviously takes place during Christmas= Christmas movie IMO.

Good movie but not even close to being a "Christmas movie". It has nothing to do with what Christmas is about.

A large majority of so called "Christmas Movies" have nothing to do with the true meaning of Christmas. Half of them are about santa claus, yet are considered "Christmas Movies"

What makes this one different?

Die Hard > Leathal Weapon

Although both are awesome. Much better than that crappy Dean Cain mall shooting Christmas fiasco...

Die Hard and Lethal Weapon are both my favorite Christmas movie to watch,now there is one Christmas movie I hated and by far the worse and that had to be The Christmas Story with Peter Billingsley, this is the movie where he was told he will shoot his eye out with the Red Ryder BB Gun..

Ok, lets assume for the moment that Jesus actually existed, the bible makes no mention that Jesus was born anywhere near Dec 25th and, in fact, seems to suggest that he was born sometime in the spring or summer. Combine that with the fact that many of the Christmas traditions we all know and love are paganistic in nature, I'd say the "true meaning of Christmas" is muddied at best.

So yeah, Die Hard may as well be about the true meaning of Christmas.
