* A major scene in ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'' is set on Hogswatchnight, but apart from Granny Weatherwax insisting witches are supposed to stay home that night and Nanny Ogg getting round this by holding a huge party at her cottage, none of the other Hogswatch traditions are mentioned. This could be EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, since Hogswatchnight didn't really gain its YouMeanXmas form until the references in ''Discworld/ReaperMan'' and ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' some years later.

* ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' presents the perfect Christmas present: a decision making machine for business executives! Good to know that your odds of being fired on a whim are a solid 50/50.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "[[Recap/SouthParkS5E14ButtersVeryOwnEpisode Butters' Very Own Episode]]" had a Christmas greeting play on Linda's car radio at one point. Other than that, it's just a run-of-the-mill episode of the show.

* The sixth episode of ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' takes place during Christmas, but the holiday is only occasionally mentioned. This example is completely justified, as the men are a little too preoccupied fighting in the Battle of the Bulge to do any celebrating.

* ''Peter Pan Live'', unlike its source material, finds the Darling nursery decorated for Christmas, but the decorations aren't acknowledged. It's especially weird in this case, because, also unlike in the source material, there isn't a section of Neverland which represents the season of winter.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' has an episode where Louie complains that the group is spending Christmas on an expedition to climb Mount Neverrest instead of at Scrooge's mansion waiting for Santa. Scrooge tells him that Santa won't visit the mansion anyway thanks to a NoodleIncident that Scrooge was involved in. Aside from this exchange, the holiday isn't mentioned or seen at all.

* ''Film/LadyInTheLake'': Set at Christmastime, seemingly for no other reason than to provide an ironic counterpoint to a FilmNoir story of betrayal and murder. A hard-nosed cop gets distracted from his interrogation of Literature/PhilipMarlowe when the cop's daughter calls the office and starts reciting "Twas the Night Before Christmas" over the phone. The opening credits are presented as a stack of Christmas cards picked up one at a time, eventually revealing a gun at the bottom. Marlowe interrupts an office Christmas party to accuse the woman organizing the party of murder.
