You're wasting your time. Factoring in sleigh speed, time zone changes, and reindeer bathroom breaks, it is scientifically impossible for this so-called Kris Kringle to deliver gifts to the approximately one billion qualifying children. As you can see, X equals no stinkin' way.

— Lisa on why she doesn't believe in Santa Claus

Lisa Loud is one of Lincoln Loud's ten sisters in the Nickelodeon animated series The Loud House. Although she is the second-youngest of the Loud siblings, at only four years old, she is also the smartest, having gotten a PhD and received a Nobel Prize despite her age. Speaking with a lateral lisp, Lisa spends her time invested in research, projects, and working on complex experiments, which often involve using her siblings as test subjects.

Appearances in Christmas specials[]

The Loud House[]

Lisa thinks Lola has no chance

Lisa's first time appearing in a Christmas production is, of course, The Loud House's second-season premiere, "11 Louds a Leapin'". Early on in the special, Lisa expresses disbelief in the existence of Santa Claus, showing her notes about this, and continually remarks to Lola that she is only wasting her time trying to get herself on Santa's nice list. Perhaps because of this, she is noticeably the only Loud sibling who does not have a Christmas stocking hanging on the wall. When Lincoln tells his sisters all about Mr. Grouse being unable to visit his own family for Christmas, Lisa, who normally doesn't show her emotions, breaks down crying after hearing his story. After the Louds and the McBrides present Mr. Grouse with a bus card so he can see his family tomorrow, and he allows them to spend Christmas Eve with him, Lisa responds by crying tears of joy. On Christmas morning, Lisa, having received a piece of a meteorite, admits to her family that she now does believe in Santa, as she managed to get a photo of Santa (actually Mr. Grouse dressed as Santa) leaving a present for Lincoln behind the couch.

In the online-exclusive Loud House short "12 Days of Christmas", in which the Loud family sings their version of the titular song, Lisa sings that her gift was "ten beakers mixing." The first time she says the line, she mixes a chemical that blows up in her face.

Lisa's next appearance in a Christmas special was the fifth-season episode "Season's Cheatings". Here, it is revealed that she is not considered an ideal choice for one's Secret Santa in the Loud family's gift-swap, because her idea of a Christmas gift is a stack of papers listing "pi worked out to the five-millionth decimal."

Lisa as the Ghost of Christmas Past

Lisa also appears somewhat prominently in its partner episode, "A Flipmas Carol". At the beginning of the episode, she and her father Lynn Sr. come to Flip's Food & Fuel to buy ingredients for the family's Christmas Eve dinner. Flip sells them an expired chicken that Lisa notices is not fit for consumption. Later, just as Flip is going to bed, Lisa appears as the Ghost of Christmas Past (the irony of this being that, out of all the Loud sisters, Lisa is the one who is least likely to believe in the supernatural). She takes Flip to revisit the night he was swindled out of going to his middle-school's Christmas dance and lost his chance of dancing with his dream girl, which is what led to him becoming the con-man he is now. At the end of the episode, Flip, having seen the error of his ways, brings an actually-edible turkey for the Louds; Lisa deduces that it is indeed a legitimate turkey dinner due to the label on the packaging.

Lisa and her family also have a cameo in The Casagrandes episode "A Very Casagrandes Christmas". At the very end of the episode, the Louds show up at the Casagrandes' Nochebuena party because their van broke down while they were picking up Lori from college.

The original show's next Christmas episode, "Snow Escape", finds Lisa and her older siblings trying to get to school on the last day before winter vacation while avoiding snowball attacks from Lynn Jr., who always goes berserk with snowballs on a "packing day".

Lisa's newest Christmas appearance is the episode "Twas the Fight Before Christmas". At the beginning of the episode, as Lynn Sr. is faking pain in his back to get out of seeing his brother Lance Loud for Christmas, the sisters are seen playing a bingo game based around his exclamations; Lisa tells Lana that she'll win if he says the word "sciatica". However, she ultimately loses the game to Lynn Jr. after Lincoln tells them that he has a plan. Later in the episode, when the Loud kids' cousin Shelby suggests that they should buy a new spatula and exercise ball for their respective dads (to replace the ones that were broken earlier) and label the gifts as being from the other brother, Lisa compliments her on this idea.

The Really Loud House[]

In the live-action made-for-TV film A Loud House Christmas, Lisa is among the kids willing to join their parents for their planned Christmas vacation to Miami. After Lincoln and Clyde send fake footage of a supposed "sharkodile" on the loose in Miami, which forces the family to cancel the plan, Lisa creates a sharkodile repellent, which is accidentally sprayed on her father Lynn Loud Sr., and later on wilderness survival expert Rip Hardcore. After finding out that the "sharkodile" is running amuck in Royal Woods, Lisa pursues the creature in hopes of studying it, not realizing that it's actually just a prop created by Lincoln and Clyde.

Mentions in other Christmas specials[]

In The All-Star Nickmas Spectacular, when Lincoln shows up to give season's greetings from himself and his sisters, he mentions Lisa alongside his other sisters.
