* The only Christmasy thing about the Music/FrankieGoesToHollywood song "The Power of Love" is the music video, which depicts the story of the Nativity.

* ''VideoGame/{{Condemned}}'' has a level set in a mega-store which is decrepit and abandoned. From the décor and the faint ghostly music you can hear playing, it's evident that the store closed down one Christmas. This is arguably one of the most atmospheric levels of the game largely due to the out of place Xmas setting.

* ''Pocketful of Miracles,'' the 1961 remake of ''Film/LadyForADay,'' takes place at Christmas time, but the only clue to this is the presence of some decorations in the hallway of the fancy hotel where Apple Annie gets her letter.

* In ''Film/TheHatefulEight'' mention is made of Joe Gage wanting to pass the holidays with his mother, and Señor Bob plays (badly) "Silent Night" on the piano. That's it. [[spoiler:And everything "Joe Gage" says during the film is a lie anyway.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheBlackHole'' includes a few sentences in the opening speech about it being Christmas (the novelization mentions special food), and when the Cygnus's lights come on they're described as a "tree lit up on Christmas morning". But then it's not mentioned again. Somewhat justified by being in space, and the majority of it taking place on a ship long out of contact with earthly calendars.

* ''VideoGame/{{Yakuza}}''; the first game at least is set at Christmas. You have to look pretty hard to see it but there is a few decorations and one or two stores play Xmas tunes.

"[[AmazingFreakingGrace Amazing Grace]]" plays over the credits of the first game, while "Silent Night" plays over the credits of the second. The third and fourth games avert this tradition, but it returns in the fifth game which takes place around Christmas of 2012, with several Christmas decorations and songs being played throughout. Saejima even gets to beat up some thugs while wearing a Santa suit (and can even crush them with a Christmas tree).

* ''Film/ComfortAndJoy'' takes place during Christmastime, but really has nothing at all to do with the holiday. Move the story to any other time of the year and nothing would change... Except perhaps that the audience might not get the "sanity clause" joke.

* Plotwise, ''Film/HomeAlone'' doesn't ''have'' to take place at Christmas; the family could have easily left Kevin behind when they left for a summer vacation. The subplot of Kevin's mother having difficulty returning home is somewhat dependent on it, but this could be accomplished with any well-traveled holiday. However, the Christmas setting does make the film more poignant and touching, and plays into the [[AnAesop Aesop]] that family is the best gift of all.

* "Breathe Again" by Music/TheReignOfKindo is about a man who chases down and brutally murders a thief who broke in and robbed his house on Christmas Eve. Add in some LyricalDissonance due to such dark lyrics set to a slow, jazzy melody, and this might be in the running for darkest Christmas song ever.

* ''Film/{{Go}}'' takes place on Christmas Eve, but the holiday really doesn't figure into its story (or, rather, it's [[SimultaneousArcs stories]]).
