The field was selected in a previous thread, so now the voting begins. Vote for the better Xmas movie, not just the better movie. But what constitutes a Xmas movie is up to you. For instance, there's no movie I think is any better than The Apartment. And a huge chunk of it takes place at Christmas, and so it almost made this tourney. But I don't think of it as a Christmas movie, so I didn't vote for it, and it didn't make it in. Use your own judgment and have fun.

Up first,

A Christmas Story vs. Christmas in Connecticut

Frosty the Snowman vs. Homecoming: A Christmas Story

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Scrooge

I love Funny Farm, but Scrooge (1951) is a classic.

Some men are searchin for the Holy Grail
But there ain't nothin sweeter 
Than riden' the rails."
