It’s the most wonderful time of year: the time when people show up on social media to fight for the idea that Die Hard is a Christmas movie. The thing is… there’s nobody to fight. Nobody really DISAGREES with that position; at most people like me respond to “Die Hard is a Christmas movie!” arguments with “Sure… okay. Whatever. I guess.”
This comes to mind because I saw this tweet from a friend of mine:
There is nothing more pathological to me than people who righteously defend that Die Hard is a Christmas movie when no one even cares enough to fight them on it. You’re tilting at windmills!!

And I thought it was very funny, but also very true. And not just true about Die Hard As Christmas Movie, but about all things in our lives.
