6 Movies for People Who Hate Christmas

By Jeff Otto,

For most, Christmas is a happy time rife with warm family memories, selfless gift giving, gentle snowfalls, and the sharing of the season's goodwill tidings. For others, it is the worst example of American consumerism, as exemplified most glaringly by the recent Black Friday mishaps at Wal-Mart and Toys"R"Us.

For the latter group, Christmas is a time when broken families are forced to mend fences for a single day of forced holiday bliss. A time when you can't step into an elevator without being subject to the Muzak version of "O Holy Night." When going to your local pharmacy means being guilted into giving up your spare change by a guy with a bell who looks like he just got released from prison.

The following recommendations are for those with a more cynical perspective of the season. These movies offer the chance to enjoy some seasonal cinematic joys with more edge and less good cheer. From German terrorists to singing skeletons, little green monsters to an alcoholic St. Nick, we've got all the bases covered.
