The title of Syfy's holiday-themed disaster movie for this year is 
"Christmas Icetastrophe", in which a grinchy asteroid "crashes into a 
small-town holiday celebration and ruins Christmas for just about 
everyone" when it causes "bizarre flash-freezing of the air, bodies 
of water and bodies of people."

Quotations from the New York Times today.

May have first appeared in (Google) news Dec. 1.
