Come Nov. 1, Christmas is everywhere. It's in grocery stores, it's on lamp posts, it's even in our Starbucks orders. But the holiday isn't only everywhere during two months of the year — it's also in hundreds of non-Christmas movies that come out every other month of the year, too. Below is a list of the 16 best Christmas scenes in non-Christmas movies, all of which prove just how omnipresent the holiday really is.
Remember how in Love Actually,Billy Mack changes the lyrics of "Love Is All Around" by the Troggs to "Christmas Is All Around?" (If you don't, you might want to re-evaluate whether or not you are a true Christmas movie fan to begin with.) Well, the truth is, Mack-daddy was right — Christmas sneaks into even the least heartwarming movies. Seriously, some people choose to consider Die Hard a Christmas movie due to its seasonal setting. Yes, really, Die Hard.
It's OK if you're suddenly questioning what exactly constitutes a Christmas movie versus a movie with the holiday in it. This list provides a few clear examples of the latter, because sometimes Christmas just happens to happen in a movie's storyline, but it doesn't have to be a whole thing. Die Hard is still up for debate, though.
