Americans have shown time and time again that they are misinformed about many topics. For instance, a study by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy found that seven percent of Americans believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Then there is the eye-opening amount of people who believe that the Earth is flat (not to mention the individuals who think that the planet is shaped like a donut). But nothing exemplifies pure ignorance quite like this new poll which found that 62% of Americans say Die Hard is NOT a Christmas movie. Yippee-ki-WRONG.
A new survey by Morning Consult and The Hollywood Reporter asked Americans one simple question: “Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?” Of the respondents, 62% said that Die Hard is not a Christmas movie.

This, this right here is why the United States is a constitutional republic and not a pure democracy. These people have bad opinions and they should feel bad. Though this shouldn’t surprise you because this is the same public that crowned Taco Bell as “America’s Favorite Mexican Restaurant.” Welcome to the bad survey, pal.
There was 25 percent of people who had enough intelligence to recognize John McTiernan’s 1988 classic film as a Christmas movie and are inherently on the right side of history. This is an abysmally and head-scratchingly low percentage, but it is some progress because a 2015 survey said that only 13 percent of people qualified Die Hard as an Xmas movie.
There was 32 percent of men who astutely deemed Die Hard to be a Christmas movie compared to 20 percent of women. Take that information and do as you please. The poll surveyed 2,200 U.S. adults from November 15-18, 2018. How did they manage to randomly survey so many ignorant people?
Five months ago, Bruce Willis AKA the endearing John McClane declared that “Die Hard is not a Christmas movie!” No disrespect Mr. Willis, but this is blasphemy.
My reaction when somebody says Die Hard is not a Christmas movie.

The movie which debuted in 1988 and prominently features Christmas in Hollis by Run-DMC isn’t just a Christmas movie, it’s THE Christmas movie.
Die Hard is a Christmas movie just like Bondock Saints is a St. Patty’s Day movie. Come out to the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs while debating if Die Hard is a Christmas movie or not.

My reaction when somebody says that Die Hard and Gremlins are not the two best Christmas movies.

If Die Hard isn’t a Christmas movie then why are there Die Hard ugly Christmas sweaters and shirts?
And a Die Hard Christmas ornaments?
And a Die Hard Christmas pillow?
And a Die Hard Christmas book?
And why does the 30th anniversary Die Hard DVD have an ugly Christmas sweater cover?
Because Die Hard is a Christmas movie.
It’s not Christmas until I see Hans Gruber fall from Nakatomi Plaza.
