— Lori upon receiving a giant present after she vowed not to open any early

Lori Marie Loud is one of the main characters from the Nickelodeon animated series The Loud House. She is the oldest of Lincoln Loud's ten sisters, and as such, acts very bossy and condescending, but at times also protective, towards her younger siblings. When not asserting her authority over them, she frequently spends her time flirting with her boyfriend, Bobby Santiago, through texting on her smartphone. By the start of the show's fifth season, she eventually graduates from high school and moves out of the Loud house to attend college.

Appearances in Christmas specials[]

As one of the show's main characters, Lori naturally has a big role in the show's first Christmas episode, "11 Louds a Leapin'". At the beginning of the episode, she is shown calling Bobby, telling him that it doesn't really matter to her what he's going to get her for their first Christmas as a couple, yet also accidentally putting pressure on him by telling him that she'll always treasure whatever he gives her. Later on, it is shown that she has a bad habit of unwrapping her and her family's presents early, and she tries to resist the temptation to do so when a large present is mailed to her, despite the attached tag telling her she should open it immediately. After Lincoln tells her and the others about how lonely their neighbor, Mr. Grouse, truly is, Lori takes part in bringing Christmas cheer to him, during which she also gives Clyde a kiss on the cheek because he was standing under the mistletoe. The next morning, she finally gets to open her giant present and finds that it's Bobby himself, having decided to give himself to her for Christmas because he couldn't decide what to give her.

In the online-exclusive Loud House short "12 Days of Christmas", in which the Loud family sings their version of the titular song, Lori sings that her gift was a phone plan for her and Bobby.

Lori busy with finals

Lori's next appearance in a Christmas production was in the fifth-season episode "Season's Cheatings". By the time of this episode, Lori has begun attending college, and is planning on coming home on Christmas Eve to spend the holidays with her family. As such, when the Loud siblings are picking their names out of a hat for their annual Secret Santa gift swap, their mother, Rita, picks for Lori. Later, when Lincoln is trying to get one of his sisters to buy him a Rip Hardcore backpack for Christmas, he calls up Lori, disguised as Rita. However, because Lori is so busy studying for finals, she tells "Rita" that the only thing she can give to any of her siblings is a Fairway University coffee mug.

Lori also appears in "Season's Cheatings"' partner episode, "A Flipmas Carol". However, her role in that episode is much smaller, not even having any lines of dialogue, due to it being A Christmas Carol parody focusing on Flip.

Lori and her family have a cameo at the end of The Casagrandes episode "A Very Casagrandes Christmas". In that episode, her parents and siblings go to pick her up from college on Christmas Eve (apparently forgetting that Lori now has her own car), but the family van, Vanzilla, breaks down, so they come to spend Christmas Eve at the Casagrandes' apartment building. (A later episode of The Loud House, "Day of the Dad", would notably reveal, in a flashback to this scene, that Lori ran to the bathroom once they arrived and missed out on meeting Bobby's dad, Arturo.)

Lori's latest Christmas-related appearance was in the series' next Christmas episode, "Twas the Fight Before Christmas". In it, she and her younger siblings team up with their previously-unseen cousins to bring an end to the ongoing feud between their respective dads, Lynn Sr. and his brother Lance Loud.

The Really Loud House[]

Live-action Bobby and Lori

In the live-action telefilm A Loud House Christmas, Lori tells her family that she will not be able to come home for Christmas this year because exams are coming up and she also has a winter golf tournament to play in two days after Christmas. Although her parents approve of her instead spending the holiday at the Casagrandes' apartment where Bobby lives, this does not sit well with Lincoln, who wants all of his family together. As part of his plan, he sends Lori a box containing their dad's figgy pudding, which is enough to convince her to come home. Bobby opts to drive her there on the Casagrande Mercado's delivery moped (again, it is not mentioned why Lori does not use her own car), but the bike runs out of gas 20 miles away from Royal Woods. After Lori calls her for help, Rita drives up in Vanzilla to pick her up. At the end of the movie, Lincoln mentions that they'll be driving Lori back to Fairway University once they're done celebrating Christmas together.

Mentions in other Christmas specials[]

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