** A particularly good one that takes place out of continuity has Superman attempting to visiting an upset child dressed up like a Santa Claus-verison of himself. Batman shows up and chides Superman for acting childish and making himself look silly, which tarnishes his reputation as an icon for good. Superman reluctantly agrees and ditches the costume, but still decides to leave all the gifts he was going to bring for the kid. But as he enters his house, the first thing he sees is Batman dressed up as Bat-Santa... he actually just wanted to hog all the glory for himself. Supes gets pretty pissed [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments and proceeds to smash Batman's face in]].
* Marvel had at least six featuring ThePunisher. Frank Castle dressing as Santa to gun down mafiosi? Two years in a row? CrazyAwesome!

--->'''Kara:''' We don't do it for the glory. We don't do it for the recognition... We do it because it needs to be done. Because if we don't, no one else will. And we do it even if no one knows what we've done. Even if no one knows we exist. Even if no one remembers we ever existed.
** In ''[[http://comicboxcommentary.blogspot.com.es/2013/12/back-issue-holiday-box-dcu-infinite.html DCU Infinite Holiday Special issue #1]]'', ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} gets to answer some of the Christmas letters that get sent to her cousin. One of those letters is from a girl who wants to see her father. However her father is an asshole who doesn't want his daughter to know he is a screw-up. Supergirl manages to talk him into clearing things up with his ex-wife and daughter through... unorthodox means. Several months later ([[http://comicboxcommentary.blogspot.com.es/2010/02/review-supergirl-50-part-2.html in Supergirl #50]]), the little girl thanks Supergirl for bringing her dad back:
--->'''Supergirl:''' You know the cliché, Fred. Everyone does. "When you're about to die, your life flashes in front of your eyes." But I've been there, and it's crap... isn't it? You see '''something''', though. You see the '''holes'''... the '''missing bits'''. And all of the things that '''would''' have made your life '''complete''', if you had one more year... a day... a '''second'''. I don't know what you saw, Fred, but considering you were in free fall for a solid minute, I bet it was an eyeful. Maybe you are a screw-up. A loser. A '''drunk'''. But maybe, the piece you're missing... can make you something better. But only if you go to her, and try. Merry Christmas, Fred. Hope it's a good one.
** In the ''DC Universe Holiday Special 2008: A Day Without Sirens'', a "Day Without Sirens" is proposed right before Christmas. Commissioner Gordon believes such an initiative is doomed to failure. The criminals of Gotham would never heed such a calling. However, the day proceeds without police sirens. It turns out that Kara Zor-El and [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} Barbara Gordon]] [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_pScx8BN4h3s/SU-kKYaVUmI/AAAAAAAACGc/LKdSPl0ht34/s1600-h/holiday-09.jpg It turns out handled covertly all emergency calls during that day]].
--->'''Oracle:''' Just rest easy knowing you did something special today.\\
'''Supergirl:''' You really think so? Do you think this one day is going to make a difference?\\
'''Oracle:''' I know so. Never discount the healing power of a little hope, Kara.

* ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'' absolutely ''LOVES'' Christmas. like with Halloween, has done at least two seasonally appropriate videos every December that the show's been in regular production. Unlike Nostalgiaween, these reviews don't have a subseries nickname. However there is a traditional celebratory freakout that gets more fantastical each year. His love even goes as far to give his Top 11 Lists an extra step beyond.

Since 2014, Doug has acknowledged that he's gotten into a habit of doing a really extreme NightmareFuel episode, followed by a RealitySubtext TearJerker one.

Which then devolved into a TwistedChristmas tale of ruination and delays.

* ''Anime/{{Kamichu}}'' has a Christmas episode. Pretty interesting, considering the show follows the daily life of a Shinto Goddess.
** Although keep in mind that episode had the show's resident HotBlooded {{Miko}} [[http://i49.tinypic.com/30c6aza.jpg get offended]] about the foreign holiday and invent "[[YouMeanXmas Yurie's Year-End Thanksgiving Day]]" as a Shintoist alternative.

* ''Manga/LoveHina'''s was a tearjerker.
* Episode 9 of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' is called "Christmas Eve". It starts out like a Christmas episode up until Nanoha and Fate visit the hospital where Hayate's staying so she won't be alone on Christmas. Little do they know that Hayate's the MoralityPet of their enemies and the {{Mana}} battery for their ArtifactOfDoom. What follows is AnAssKickingChristmas that lasts for 3 episodes.

** Except for Yuusaku. Nobody who's willing to be in ''that'' costume could possibly be feeling down.
