    Killing on Christmas? I'll take adultery, please.

    Good to know.

    I'll go with The Lotus Eaters, which culminates on Christmas. Then again, it's one of my favorite movies ever, so there's that.

    I'm a sucker for the original "Miracle on 34th Street."

    Second Orleander's choice.

    But also the George C. Scott version of Dicken's "Christmas Carol" - because it contains the only filmed complete central quote of the story, from the main character, which is Marley's Ghost:

    "Business? Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business. Charity, kindness, mercy, and forbearance were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business"

    He misses the commas framing "all", is all. But Dickens was masterful.

    I think I like that one most as well. Do you know who played the first ghost. The Christmas past one?

    But you have to admit Scrooged with Bill Murray was good as well. I laughed my butt off when he wanted to staple the antlers on the mice.

    Christmas Vacation. One of the funniest holiday movies with some of the funniest quotes.

    Bad Santa was real good.

    Myself, I'd have to say The Ref.

    Yeah, in Scrooged, how could you not love the reaction the old guy had to stapling antlers on the mice.
