Not exactly a "holiday" movie, but Kurutta ippêji (or A Page of Madness) is a film about a man who takes a job at an asylum with hopes of freeing his imprisoned wife.

Angel on My Shoulder (1946)

Quite a religious theme:

 "The Devil arranges for a deceased gangster to return to Earth as a well-respected judge to make up for his previous life." (IMDb)

Angel on My Shoulder stars Paul Muni, Anne Baxter, and Claude Rains

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)

Judging by the IMDb rating and the title alone, this seems to be one of those movies that the average person would steer clear of, but I'm thinking of giving it a chance. It seems like one of those movies that are so bad that you have to watch it just to witness how bad it is. One reviewer called it "fabulously awful". 

"The Martians kidnap Santa because there is nobody on Mars to give their children presents." (IMDb)

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians stars John Call, Leonard Hicks, and Vincent Beck

I hope everyone has a wonderful week of relaxation and merriment. For those who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas to you and to those who celebrate Kwanzaa, Happy Kwanzaa!

To those who celebrated Hanukkah, I hope your holiday was fabulous!

Once again, have a great week everyone!
