There are two types of people in the world: the ones who don’t think Die Hard is a Christmas film, and those of us who are right. If you want to solidify your position as being on the Christmas side, then these Die Hard Christmas jumpers will be perfect for you.
The argument about whether Die Hard is a Christmas film has been one to span the ages (or since its release in 1989). For those of us who get that festive feeling from the film, it’s easy to see why. There’s someone dressed as Santa (although he may not look his best), it’s set at a Christmas party on Christmas Eve, and if Hans Gruber isn’t a Christmas film villain to the extreme, then I don’t know who is.
Unfortunately, the club took a bit of a blow earlier this year when John McClane himself said that it wasn’t a Christmas film. However, he did finish the speech by saying that Die Hard was a “Bruce Willis film.” That was quite obvious, really, and doesn’t mean that it can’t also be a Christmas film too.
Nonetheless, there has never been a better time to reaffirm your Christmas beliefs in Die Hard to yourself and others. And of course, the best way to do that is through a Die Hard Christmas jumper.
The Best Die Hard Christmas Jumpers
Sadly, it’s a little too late to be getting yourself one of thee for this year’s festive season. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be super prepared for next year or even nab yourself one in the Boxing Day sales. Turn up to the festivities next year rocking a Die Hard Christmas jumper and no one will don’t your stance.
Ho Ho Ho
Starting off with an absolute classic — the jumper worn by ‘Santa’ that John has festively decorated…ish. This scene is iconic in the film and is the perfect Christmas jumper for Die Hard. It’s not blatantly obvious what it is, but those who know will know. Plus, it has “Ho-Ho-Ho” on it, so it’s undoubtedly festive. This one is £19.99 on Amazon but there are lots of different versions out there.
A Nakatomi Employee
If you’re more of a fan of Christmas t-shirts, then this may be the option for you. I can’t say whether any of the Nakatomi employees actually wore this on the evening, but it’s still great anyway. This t-shirt is inspired by the Christmas party and is another one that is subtle enough, but festive enough, that people might not even know it’s Die Hard. Available on TruffleShuffle for £19.99, it’s a festive favourite to add to your Christmas wardrobe. There’s even a very similar jumper version on Amazon if you want something a little warmer.
A Die Hard Christmas
This one is a little more traditional if you want to go hard with the Christmas. Designed a lot more like a traditional Christmas jumper, this one looks like any old festive jumper from afar, but on a closer look, some Die Hard details really make the difference. On Amazon once again, this one is a £24.99 sweatshirt.
A Festive Bruce Willis
If you’re after a little more Bruce Willis on your festive attire, then this sweatshirt is embellished with the man himself. Clearly, this one is a lot more obvious that it’s Die Hard related. But if you can’t show your love for it at Christmas, then you never will.
Embellished with John McClane and the famous “Merry Christmas, pal” this is the perfect Die Hard Christmas jumper for those *really* love the film. It’s available on AllThingsBanter at £23.99.
