Batman Adventures Holiday Special #1
Gotham Police send Renee Montoya and Harvey Bullock undercover at a Gotham department store, trying to find a shoplifter who has been robbing the store blind during the holiday season. In disguise as St. Nicholas, Bullock is a terrible Santa, uninterested in the task and literally nodding off while listening to children rattle off their wish lists.
Paul Dini's humor and skill at building a compact 12 page Christmas tale is the star here, along with Bruce Timm's fluid brushwork.

Hit-and-run in Gotham City
Detective Comics #826, March 2007
Paul Dini's script has Joker behind the wheel of a SUV, running down pedestrians on the snowy streets of Gotham on Christmas Eve, with a kidnapped Robin alongside to observe. The running dialogue (all rather one-sided since Robin is gagged with a Christmas decoration) has Joker proving his homicidal-maniac bonefides with casual hit-and-runs and a murderous trip through a fast food drive-through.
This Joker is the 'Killer Clown' of Batman's many decades, but letting the character dominate the tale while going about murdering people with no particular grand plan beyond the immediate gratification of torturing Robin (who can do nothing) is unique. Nearly the whole tale is told from within the interior of the SUV as Joker monolgues his way through the murders and Robin desperately struggles to break free.
