Die Hard, starring the vest wearing shoeless bad ass Bruce Willis and the English Gentleman turned German Terrorist for the part - Alan Rickman
So this may not be a traditional Christmas Movie, but it is one of my fave films set AT Christmas. Snow, Jingle Bells, a Christmas Party...
This is most definitely in my top ten of all films. Took me ages to get Mr RJ to watch but once he did he was hooked too.
Yippy Ki Yay people....
(OMG was it really out in 1988! I feel so old)

Nicole Dennis with her story Christmas Promise
Wounded by an IED and medically discharged, Marine Trace LaPointe wandered around the country until a simple postcard with the reminder of a promise stopped him.
Lost in his damaged body and pride, he didn't want to return home to face the man he left behind. Days before Christmas, he makes his way to his hometown to face the unknown.
Geeky, book-smart Camden Ross loved a boy after Trace protected him on the schoolyard.
When Trace signed for the Marines, Camden had a pair of saint medallions created to protect his one love and partner. He made him promise to return home after his tour finished. Several tours later, there was no Trace and Camden moved on with his life.
He never forgot his first love, sending a postcard in the mail every Christmas as a reminder, hoping one day his love would appear on his doorstep.
