One of my favorite things to do is park myself on the couch with a hot beverage and revisit my favorite Christmas movies. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t watch them at just any time of the year. Jimmy Stewart running through Bedford Falls and screaming “Merry Christmas” at the top of his lungs in the middle of June doesn’t quite work for me. In November and December, though, there’s nothing I want to see more than the holiday movies I’ve been watching for years. They’re the cinematic version of comfort food. But as much as I love them, I know that Christmas movies are only as good as the characters in them. Here are ten of the most memorable:

10. Jack Skellington – A Nightmare Before Christmas

9. Cousin Eddie – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

8. Kevin McCallister – Home Alone

7. Kris Kringle – Miracle on 34th Street

6. The Grinch – How the Grinch Stole Christmas

5. George Bailey – It’s a Wonderful Life

4. Ebenezer Scrooge – A Christmas Carol

3. Clark Griswold – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

2. Buddy – Elf

1. Ralphie Parker – A Christmas Story
