If you are a fan of the film Die Hard we have a Christmas present for you. The film, starring Bruce Willis and set around Christmas, has sparked countless debates over the years as to whether or not it should be considered a “Christmas film.”
fans of the Die Hard series say yes it is. While more traditional fans of snow and reindeer and fat guys sneaking into your house while you sleep say no, it’s not the Christmas season and shouldn’t be celebrated as such.
Personally, I think the crowd of Die Hard is a Holiday Movie wins the argument. That’s because one of the hottest pre-Christmas gifts at Amazon and other online retailers is an advent calendar depicting the epic flight of John McClane’s main antagonist, Hans Gruber, alongside Nakatomi Plaza.
If you know your way around Die Hard but I have no idea what an advent calendar is, let me educate you on that question. The purpose of an advent calendar is to count down the days until Christmas. This is usually done by opening a small flap on the calendar to reveal a holiday season devotional message or token of appreciation.
The same goes for the Die Hard advent calendar, but it requires a more “groundbreaking” or should we say “splashing” approach to the countdown. Every day, the closer we get to Christmas, Hans Gruber grows closer to the ground. Nothing says happy holidays like destroying evil, right?
You can find several versions of the Die Hard advent calendar online. Amazon has several to choose from. There are also more artistic and stylistic versions of this “holiday magic moment” available from retailers on the Etsy shopping site.
Hey, if reindeer can fly, why can’t bad guys do it? Of course, Hans Gruber, reindeer are not that good at landing. Prices range from as little as $9.00 to much more depending on how deep you want to go into the scenario.
That Die Hard The advent calendar proves the late George Carlin right: “If you nail two things together that have never been nailed before, some idiot will buy it.” To creativity and Christmas.
Next up is Dolly Parton’s Hard Candy Christmas a Christmas carol or just a song about a girl from a disreputable house who has to look for a new apartment in December?
Fun fact, both Hard Candy Christmas by Dolly and Die Hard with Bruce Willis performed in the same year. That was 1988. Don’t you feel old?
