Bruce Willis has spent the festive period surrounded by his family watching Die Hard... which appears to finally settle the debate over whether or not the flick is a Christmas movie.

Bruce's wife, Emma Hemming Willis, shared a glimpse into their festive day - which they shared with their daughters Evelyn and Mabel - in heartwarming posts on social media.

In the short clip uploaded to Emma's Instagram, the young girls descend a staircase to discover a pile of gifts beneath a beautifully decorated Christmas tree.

Emma captioned the video: "From our family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!!"

The heartwarming post attracted an outpouring of holiday wishes from fans, who flooded the comment section with messages of joy and appreciation for the Willis family.

In response to the well-wishers, Emma expressed her thanks and shared a Christmas card featuring snapshots of the children, bearing the message: "Happy Holidays and 'Live it up!'"

In response, several fans took to the comments section to reveal that they were watching Bruce in one of his most iconic movies: Die Hard.

In response, Emma then took to her Instagram Stories to share a clip of the family gathered also watching the debated Christmas classic, Die Hard, along with the words, "Us too".

The debate about whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie has been raging for years because although it doesn't follow the same themes as a standard festive flick, it's still set at that time of year.

So who better to decide than the Willis family themselves?

Rumer Willis took to her Instagram story, where she shared a video featuring her and her sisters, Tallulah and Scout.

In the video, Rumer announced: "I've collected all three Willis girls." Without hesitation, Scout interjected, stating: "It's a f***ing Christmas movie. It takes place during Christmas."

The sisters collectively aligned on their stance, declaring: "It's a Christmas movie," with Rumer delivering the conclusive verdict.

The Willis sisters, including Rumer, Tallulah, and Scout, have been a source of support for their father, especially in recent months following the public revelation of his frontotemporal dementia diagnosis.

Alongside their mother, Demi Moore, and stepmother Emma, the siblings have kept their followers informed about their father's condition.

Bruce, 68, had retired from acting in March 2022 after his family shared that he had aphasia - a condition that affects speech and comprehension - before revealing in February 2023 that further tests had determined that the cause was frontotemporal dementia.

Despite going through a difficult time as a family, it's evident that they are making the best of it and supporting each other in the best way possible.

To conclude, Die Hard is a Christmas movie.
