I have to admit it: I fall for Christmas every year. I love the food (my favorite is roast beef with Yorkshire pudding), the drinks (hello, egg nog!), the trees (we get a six-footer every year), and I even like the shopping and the crowds. However, even though I go to The Nutcracker, sprinkle my winter wardrobe with red and green, and hang the stockings by the chimney with care, I do not, I repeat, do not love Christmas as much as these 7 yule-tiders.
These tattoo and Christmas lovers are so smitten with the holiday season that they have opted to permanently etch odes to Christmas trees, the Grinch, and even Ralphie from A Christmas Story into their skin.

A Christmas Story 1 of 7Yes, someone loves A Christmas Story so much they got Ralphie's face tattooed on their body. But I must say, it's pretty adorable. (Tattoo by Dustin Hysell)

Season’s Greeting? 2 of 7
Buddy the Elf! 3 of 7While some may just buy the DVD, this Elf fan got an image of Will Ferrell as the Buddy the Elf tattooed permanently on their skin. Now, that is a Christmas statement.

Charlie Brown’s Tree 4 of 7Let's admit it, we all love A Charlie Brown Christmas. It's been a family favorite for decades. But this A Charlie Brown Christmas fan takes his love to a whole new level with him tat that pays homage to the little tree featured in the film. Bonus points for being adorable.

Grinch 5 of 7While many might go to the original works of Dr. Seuss for his art inspiration, this How the Grinch Who Stole Christmas fan went with the Jim Carey version. An interesting choice don't you think? Tattoo by Shane O'Neil.

Yoda Santa 6 of 7Now, this Yoda Santa mash-up is pure holiday magic. It has so much going for it; it has Star Wars, Santa Claus, hardcore geekery, and odd cuteness, all wrapped in one holiday tattoo package. This piece of genius is by Josh Woods of Black 13 Tattoo.

Toys for Tots 7 of 7You can give money to charity, or perhaps pitch in and help with your time and energy, but this guy went a step further; he got his favorite charity tattooed on his body. And I have no idea why this Toys for Tots tribute tat includes a Santa who appears to be wearing a Mexican wrestler mask.
