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 are 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?
