YES: Screenwriter Steven E. de Souza Thinks So
Steven E. de Souza has chimed in multiple times about whether he thinks Die Hard is a Christmas movie. He is firmly in the YES category.
“The Christmas setting is in the source novel, Nothing Lasts Forever, by Roderick Thorp,” de Souza said in an interview with DazeDigital. “One of our producers, Joel Silver, had made Lethal Weapon the previous year, which was also set during the holiday, and he had decided he liked all his movies to take place at Christmas, as they would then very likely be played on television every December and we would all get residual cheques. Obviously, he was right!”
