Apparently only 13% of people deem "Die Hard" to be a Christmas movie. HELLO!!! It happens at a Christmas party! Maybe it doesn't give us the warm and fuzzies like Miracle on 34th Street or Elf, but at the end Carl overcomes a previous tragedy, saves the day, and John McClane saves his marriage... at least for this installment of the series!
Also worth noting ... this year Die Hard is one of the 25 movies being preserved by the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress along with The Goonies, Field of Dreams, & Titanic. How does a movie get selected for this? It has to be "culturally, historically, or aesthetically" significant. Die Hard is culturally, historically, & aesthetically significant to my Christmas!
