For our last chart of the year, we're revisiting Die Hard, and the continuing debate about whether it is indeed a Christmas movie. This chart was actually our very first one to go "viral" on reddit, where it got almost 20k upvotes, so we have a bit of a soft spot for it. – So, Is It A Christmas Movie? – If you judge it based on what people do… then yes. Every year, the number of people searching on Google for Die Hard starts to increase once December rolls around. We're going to assume that correlates with people actually watching the movie, and that they aren't just searching for no reason. – That said, Die Hard was initially released in July, 1988. Not exactly the first month that comes to mind when you think "Christmas movie". – Furthermore, when you actually ask people, they aren't so sure. A poll conducted by Morning Consult found that 63% of people who had seen Die Hard thought it was not a Christmas movie. – Either way – everyone is wrong – our favourite take on the debate comes from twitter user Jesse McLaren who says “Die Hard isn’t a Christmas movie. He sneaks around a tower at night avoiding Alan Rickman. It’s a Harry Potter movie.”.
