Luna Loud is one of the main characters from the Nickelodeon animated series The Loud House. She is the third-oldest of Lincoln Loud's ten sisters and gives a literal meaning to their surname, as she is known for her passion for rock music, which she developed when she attended her first concert during seventh grade. Aspiring to become a rock star, Luna leads a band called the Moon Goats (which consists of her girlfriend, Sam Sharp, and their bandmates, Sully and Mazzy). When not jamming with her bandmates, she is often seen practicing with her Logan V-80 Shredder guitar or listening to rock music, and frequently quotes lyrics from famous songs. She is also caring and supportive of her siblings, much like her older sister, Leni.
Appearances in Christmas specials
As one of the show's main characters, Luna naturally has a prominent role in its first Christmas episode, "11 Louds a Leapin'". Her subplot in the special finds her trying to write a new Christmas song on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, she suffers a case of writer's block in doing so, as the lyrics she initially comes up with all relate to wanting and receiving presents. Later, Lincoln tells all the sisters about that he found out that their neighbor, Mr. Grouse, has no one to spend the holidays and can't travel to see his family. This gives Luna the realization that the reason she's been having much so trouble with her song is because her previous attempts were not in the true Christmas spirit at all. When the Loud and McBride families go to spend the evening with Mr. Grouse and spread Christmas cheer to him, Luna leads them in singing her new song, "That's What Christmas is All About". At the end of the episode, it is shown that Luna received a banjo for Christmas.
Luna's next appearance in a Christmas special was in the fifth-season episode "Season's Cheatings". In that episode, Lincoln has gotten Lily as his Secret Santa, but is hoping to receive a Rip Hardcore backpack. After several failed tries to get one of his other sisters as his Secret Santa, Lincoln simply asks Luna if she'd switch her Secret Santa name-card (which has Leni's name) with Lily. Since she owes Lincoln a favor because he filled in for one of her bandmates in the Moon Goats' last gig, Luna agrees to this deal and buys the backpack. However, when Lincoln realizes he doesn't have a gift for his gift recipient, Lola, he ends up trading the backpack to his rival, Chandler, for a pair of earrings. In the end, Lincoln admits that he opened his present early, but lets Luna know that it was exactly what he wanted.
