The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Die Hard

Yes, it's that time of year once again... where friends, family members, work colleagues and strangers on the internet argue over whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas film.

Taking place over Christmas, the repeated references to Santa Claus, and the words "Merry Christmas" being used as a snappy one-line by both the good guys and bad, all should get you in the mood for the holiday season, if not for the fact that seeing John McClane take on Hans Gruber at this time of year is almost as much of an annual tradition as Christmas itself.
