    Ok, Usually I'd say the Grinch, but Rickman did such a great job as Hans Gruber in Die Hard, I couldn't resist! Oops. I went with favorite, not most wicked. But, then again,most of those characters had a decent heart once you could defrost it. Hans never showed any heart melt. The again neither did Scut Farkus.

    Maybe Skut grew into Hans!

    It's about redemption. Grinch beats out Scrooge by the width of a runner.

    Not exactly a Christmas movie, but Potter from It's a Wonderful Life is a bad-ass.

    I love the alternate ending from SNL that showed Potter getting his a$$ kicked.

    So, I voted for the Grinch for this one. I guess I felt like going green...

    I was thinking Potter myself. Had to go with B B Thornton. Great movie when all the F bombs are removed. Almost becomes a silent movie.

    I beg to differ. It's a Wonderful Life is definitely a Christmas movie. One of the best IMHO.

    Even though Billy Bob's character in Bad Santa was an unsavory con man, would he really be classified as a villain?

    Hans Gruber, hands down...

    I'd like to Write In Frank Shirley (Brian Doyle Murray) from Christmas Vacation. Then I'd have a tough time...

    Merry Christmas! Shitter was Full!

    I voted Heat Miser.

    What, with his squat body, mean mug, orange-y flaming hair, great song - he's too much! Too much!

    The villain Breeze may have in mind appeared in "Home Alone 2," so he is a Christmas villain in that sense.
