* Viciously parodied in a ''FamilyGuy'' ChristmasSpecial, where Peter denies help to a husband and his highly pregnant wife, ON Christmas Eve, [[UpToEleven after he's just finished retelling the story of Jesus birth]], and goes as far as threatening them with a gun.

* Alice in ''TheVicarOfDibley'' gave birth while on stage playing Mary in the village nativity play. Everybody thought [[AllPartOfTheShow it was an act]]. She had to be seen to by a vet. Is very much a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
-->'''Alice''': I'm confused. Have I, in fact, given birth to the Son of God?
-->'''Geraldine''': No, because for one thing, she's a girl, isn't she.

* ''{{Nightingales}}'' has a heavily pregnant woman named Mary arrive on Christmas Eve at the office block where the show is set. After assuring them she's not an allegory, she then proceeds to give birth to, among other things, a toaster, the Pope, Harold Pinter and a tandem.
* ''WalkerTexasRanger'' not only has this, the happy couple are named Jose (who gave up a life of crime in a gang and is now running a woodworking shop) and Maria.
** That's fairly subtle for this show...
* Done in an episode of ''{{Moonlighting}}''. It included a trio of FBI agents, all of them named Wiseman.
* ''{{Newhart}}'' had an episode where it was Christmas Eve at the Stratford Inn and a guest ended up giving birth. Luckily for her, there happened to be a group of snowbound physicians staying there as well. In the tag, three brothers named "Weissman" showed up to check in.

* Parodied in the ''{{Bottom}}'' episode "Holy", when Richie finds a baby left on the doorstep of the flat during their Christmas party. True to form, following a few similarities to the Nativity story he lets this go [[AGodAmI completely to his head]]. Convinced that he's the "Mother of God" and has maintained his virginity because he's "better than everyone else in the world", he threatens that the other characters will be sent to Hell by [[{{God}} his 'husband']]. [[spoiler: It turns out it's the grandson of their landlord, who left him on the step because he couldn't be bothered dealing with the kid himself.]]

* In ''Theatre/TheBibleTheCompleteWordOfGodAbridged'', the nativity of {{Jesus}} is sent up anachronistically, like many other Bible stories included in the play. One of the Wise Men quips that it's tough luck for a child receiving presents that his birthday falls on Christmas.

* Done in one episode of the ''TheOuterLimits'' revival series, with the baby literally being born in a manger, or a barn atleast. The real kicker? [[CloneJesus Said baby is the clone of Jesus]], and proceeds to save his parents from a pursuing christian cult leader who wants to raise the child under his own strict control for his own purposes. The last shot of the episode is of the new family walking down a highway together and getting picked up by a passing trucker.
