“Die Hard” Scribe Talks The Christmas Debate

When it comes to Christmas, one of the most common debates that gets brought up every year on social media is the age old question – “Is Die Hard the best Christmas movie, or the ONLY Christmas movie?”

Some however remain undecided about the film’s status, not sure if it can be lumped in with other seasonal holiday films like “Home Alone” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” as it’s a Summer blockbuster that just happens to take place during Christmas.

Now, “Die Hard” screenwriter Steven E. de Souza has weighed in on the debate via Twitter after a fan tweeted: “DH is about love, devotion, sacrifice, generosity, and resisting evil – how could it not be a Christmas movie?”

de Souza responded: “Plus a woman about to give birth features prominently” and went on to reply again with the hashtag “Die Hard Is A Christmas Movie”. That settles it.
