9. Hans Gruber (Die Hard)

Hans Gruber is not only a Christmas movie villain, he's one of the best action movie villains ever to hit the big screen, taking everyone hostage during the holidays all for his evil plan to get his hands on a major company's money. Good thing there's a secret New York cop in the building.

8. Marv and Harry (Home Alone)

2. Ebenezer Scrooge (A Christmas Carol)

Bah Humbug! The most classic of all the Christmas villains, Ebenezer Scrooge has no time for holiday cheer, family or other people's problems - until he's visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future that is.

1. The Grinch (How the Grinch Stole Christmas)

Calling someone a Grinch is the same as saying they have no heart (but not that they have no hope!) The sly Grinch thinks that if sneaks away presents and decorations he can ruin the holidays in Whoville, but he has a change of heart when he sees what happens.
