This was messed up. Only The X-Files would have a Christmas show in a haunted house occupied by homicidal psychology majors. Lily Tomlin and Ed Asner are so great! They made really weird ghosts. Parts of this episode just have me going.."Derrr...huh?" Esp the whole when Mulder shoots Scully but it isn't really Mulder and she's not really shot...and then Scully shoots Mulder but it's not Scully and... I'm confused...was this a shipper episode? Was them wallowing in their blood supposed to be a heart felt moment? Why doesn't it occur to Scully that Mulder has nowhere to go? Seeing as Mulder has no family or friends except Scully. You'd think she'd invite him over. Stupid thoughtless Scully. The ghosts say they remember what the meaning of Christmas is...so the meaning of Christmas is double suicide and driving people mad? Maybe I missed the true lesson but that's what I got out of it. Mulder's little insane speech when he's shooting at Scully wasn't the best acting David Duchovny's done. Sorry David, I've seen you do better. The mental torture was good but it would have been better if it didn't sound like Mulder and Scully were in a psychatrist's office. All in all...one of those episodes where you look at the television in confusion and have to convince yourself you did not lose your mind, that was actually an episode. Not bad just...strange.
