Christmas Movies That Aren’t Typically Considered Christmas Movies (But Should Be)

We’ll see your argument about Die Hard and raise you these five other films. Sure, they’re not exactly Christmas movies in the traditional sense — at least not in the way of Miracle on 34th Street or A Christmas Story. But Christmas definitely looms large in them. I mean, after all, Gizmo in Gremlins was a father’s Christmas present to his son, even if the rest of the movie is a horror-comedy about an army of evil, possessed Gizmos taking over that father and son’s hometown. You can try to fight us about it. But remember, we have John McClane, a bunch of Gremlins and even Edward Scissorhands on our side.
