* A minor example in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'': two of the holiday 2016 sprays for Junkrat and Roadhog feature them in swimsuits lounging on beach chairs, with Junkrat sipping a green drink with a candy cane in it and wearing Christmas-tree-shaped-sunglasses, and Roadhog wearing a wreath around his neck. Makes sense, considering they're both Australian, so Christmas, while not taking place in July, would fall during the summer months.

* Creator/DaneCook once did a sketch about being late for work, which included not having enough time to shower, so it became necessary to wear "that fat sweater that holds your stink in," with the excuse, "Hey! This is my [[HomemadeSweaterFromHell Christmas sweater]] in July!"

* The second ''TenchiMuyo'' movie, ''Daughter of Darkness'', has the crew celebrating Mayuka's first Christmas in the summer at they very end of the movie. This was mostly because the Juraian equivalent, Starica, happened at that time. [[spoiler: It was also because Mayuka had been reborn after her death at the end.]]

** Even warm climates that happen to be in the Northern Hemisphere will do this; even though it's technically winter, it might feel like summer or at least not be all that cold.

* In one episode of the ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'' cartoon, Mario and Luigi introduce Christmas to the cave people to stop them from quarreling, despite it being the middle of August. Mario justifies it by saying the cave people don't know any better.

Mario justifies it by saying the cave people don't know any better. Within hours, everyone's adopted 'Cave Christmas', even Bowser and his kids, who attempt a HowTheCharacterStoleChristmas on the heroes, forcing Mario and Yoshi to retake the gifts from the Disco Palace!

* There are several cases of TV networks running marathons of Christmas specials in July (which is one of the four UsefulNotes/{{Sweeps}} months and thus makes for better ratings). It isn't uncommon for viewers in [[ChristmasInAmerica the USA]] and [[AVeryBritishChristmas the UK]] to find Christmas specials and Christmas movies dominating certain TV Channels for part of the week in the height of midsummer.



** All of the "Shop at Home" channels in the US (QVC, Home Shopping Network) air Christmas in July specials each year. It used to serve a more pragmatic purpose though. Many companies had long processing and delivery times ("Please allow six to eight weeks for delivery" was their mantra.) Usually when something was ordered in July, it would arrive in September or October, right about the time that Christmas shopping would start to trickle into people's minds.
* British TV tends not to take note of when the Christmas episodes fall in imported American series. So you end up with little inconsistences like the Christmas episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' airing in April, or the Barone family in ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'' celebrating their Christmas in July.
