Movie Quote Monday – Die Hard

Not everyone considers Die Hard a Christmas movie, but I do.

For one thing, it takes place at a Christmas party. There’s even a tree…that falls over after the roof explodes. But still, Christmas.

And the hero, John McClane writes “Now I have a machine gun, HO HO HO” on a dead guy’s shirt. So Santa! Christmas!

And throughout the film, there’s all kinds of talk about miracles…

Hans Gruber: It’s Christmas, Theo. It’s the time of miracles, so be of good cheer.

Ok, so those areΒ the bad guys.

But hey, that’s okay too, because even the bad guys believe in the magic of Christmas!


Do you think Die Hard is a Christmas movie?

Or are you a die hard Christmas purist – it’s only a Christmas movie if the movie is about Christmas?

Do you believe that Christmas is a time of miracles?

Are you a good guy or a bad guy?

    • I was about to ask how that’s possible, but I only saw it the first first time myself maybe 5 or 6 years ago. It’s super fun – you should check it out. If you like action movies and Bruce Willis with hair, haha.

  3. Boots,

    Millions of Miracles are happening every nanosecond (it’s always Christmas somewhere) and yes Die Hard is absolutely a Christmas movie. I actually enjoyed the triumph of the great underdog portrayal Bruce Willis gave even though I myself am a horrible, horrible, horrible person(s).

    • I think there is a little hero and a little bad guy in us all. But I don’t think horrible is what your Ho Ho Ho stands for – either one of you, haha! Anyone who says miracles are happening every nanosecond can’t be horrible. And I think you truly believe it, and I do too.

      • Ho Ho Who?

        I just got off the phone with a friend and Die Hard is her oldest son’s favorite Christmas movie – they watch it every year.

        Happy Holidays Michelle

        • Haha, that’s awesome! I like traditions, especially good ones.

          Happy Holidays to you, Mark! Thanks for being my friend. πŸ˜€

  4. I do, I do, I do believe that Die Hard is a Christmas movie, but I do not always find others who agree!

    • I find they don’t all agree too, but I choose to believe they are wrong. πŸ™‚
