The Eternal Debate: Are These Christmas Movies or Not?

If a movie is set around Christmas, does that automatically make it a Christmas movie?

Like, does it count as a Christmas movie if it’s an action movie or a horror flick that just happens to take place at Christmas, but isn’t specifically ABOUT Christmas?

Buzzfeed is trying to settle that debate by taking 12 of the most fought-over movies and having the public decide.

Here’s how the voting is going so far for 10 of them:

Note: the poll results update in real-time so the numbers may be old. (You can see current results and vote HERE)

1.  “Die Hard”:  56% Christmas, 44% Not Christmas.

2.  “Home Alone”:  97% Christmas, 3% Not Christmas.

3.  “Gremlins”:  40% Christmas, 60% Not Christmas.

4.  “Frozen”:  22% Christmas, 78% Not Christmas.

5.  “Lethal Weapon”:  16% Christmas, 84% Not Christmas.

6.  “The Nightmare Before Christmas”:  78% Christmas, 22% Not Christmas.

7.  “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”:  15% Christmas, 85% Not Christmas.

8.  “Edward Scissorhands”:  20% Christmas, 80% Not Christmas.

9.  “Batman Returns”:  12% Christmas, 88% Not Christmas.

10.  “Eyes Wide Shut”:  5% Christmas, 95% Not Christmas.

(Although I bet if people were asked if “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is a Halloween movie, you’d get the same result.  But the debate here isn’t that difficult.  Is it a Christmas movie or a Halloween movie?  The answer is . . . YES.)
