10 Great Christmas-Adjacent Movies That Aren't Die Hard: Vulture
Whenever we discuss our favorite Christmas movies, there's always that one guy (and it's always a guy) who chimes in, "What about Die Hard?" Listen, Die Hard is a great film, but saying it's a great Christmas film is, at this point, well-worn territory. If you're looking for actual holiday-movie alternatives to watch in December, something that takes place during the holidays, but isn't It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story, or one of the 97 versions of A Christmas Carol. There are many other Christmas-adjacent movies out there. Movies that have that hint of Christmas, without all of the usual Christmas trappings and lessons. Movies that take place during the holiday season, and may feature brightly lit trees and snow and maybe even a Christmas carol or two but aren't about learning the real meaning of the holiday. Below, we've listed ten of our favorite movies that take place at Christmas but aren't technically Christmas movies.
