Ho, ho, ho and a Merry Christmas! Wait… Santa…. WATCH OUT!!!!!

The holidays have always been a source of merriment and cheer, and of course, presents a plenty. However, Christmas scrooges do exist in the deep, dark corners of the earth. They tend to be cranky old buggers, who enjoy plastering frowns on the faces of happy, frolicking, rosy-cheeked little children. They’re greedy, they’re nasty, and they’re green. Well, sometimes at least. So to celebrate all the unmerrinessĀ of these vile villains, we’ve collected a list of the most classic Christmas criminals to avoid. So go ahead and grab some milk and cookies (and a hand to squeeze when you get frightened!) and sort through our Villainous Gallery.

Oh, and careful Rudolf. I think the Grinch has been eyeing that shiny red nose of yours…
