Rose [Betty White] on The Golden Girls

Michael [Steve Carell] on The Office

Abby [Pauley Perrette] on NCIS

"Twinkling colored lights are nice and so are plastic Santas and reindeers and nativity scenes, but let me tell you something. There's nothing like the sight of a beautiful, black-as-pitch raven to get you in the Christmas spirit."

Karen [Megan Mullally] on Will and Grace

"This is the worst Christmas ever. I had thought it was the one when our parents bought us hamsters and forgot to poke holes in the boxes, but at least that had a moment of suspense."
