* Subverted by "Over The River And Through The Wood", which is actually about ''Thanksgiving'', but its first two verses (which do not specify a holiday) are invariably heard around Christmastime.

* Music/{{Enya}} released an entire album of Christmas music called "And Winter Came." Some of the songs reference Christmas directly, some only allude to it, and some don't mention it at all. "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NEsfO3x1uo White Is In the Winter Night]]," for instance, talks about the sights and colors one might see around the holiday season, but never explicitly mentions Christmas.

* ''A cappela'' group Straight No Chaser has a song called "12 Days" that blends "The Twelve Days of Christmas" with... almost everything. It starts fairly normal, until about half the group jumps from two to four, and is corrected by the other half, who interpolate the third day lyrics in, before ending up somehow at ''five golden rings''. And then they start throwing in "Deck the Halls" and "Here We Come A-Wassailing" and, I kid you not, Toto's "Africa". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Fe11OlMiz8 Seriously, just listen.]]

* "Nuttin' for Christmas" straddles the line between comedy and melancholy. The best known version was sung by Barry Gordon at 6 six years old.old. It tells of a SpoiledBrat who plays all kinds of pranks, and as such, will get nothing for Christmas because "somebody snitched on me." Santa appears to show up at the end, only to [[DoubleSubversion reveal himself as a thief the boy is in cahoots with to steal his family's stuff]]. There's also some StylisticSuck in a version played by Dr. Demento where the boy pauses in the middle of a line to take a breath, and later has to tell the chorus to come in because he's running out of breath.
