Christmas Clip O' the Day (2 of 5) | It's literally Christmas Eve.

2013, the first year in literally a million that I didn't post this clip somewhere on Christmas Eve.

This scene from THE APARTMENT.  C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon), the bar, Santa, the jukebox, the pick-up, the straws, the dancing, the guy trying to close up - it's my current and long-standing favorite Christmas Eve on film.  Also a favorite film scene, full stop.

Why?

Some years you're C.C. Baxter, some years you're Santa, some years you're trying to close up shop, and some years you're blowing straw wrappers at a stranger in a crowded bar.
