* ''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.

* ''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.

* Strangely used in all places in Literature/TheBible itself. Though in its case, it's the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, which in the gospel of John is mentioned as the Feast of Dedication, which Jesus and the Jews celebrate, but is eclipsed by Jesus having another discussion with the Jews about His being the Messiah.

* ''Film/JurassicWorld'' takes place during the Christmas, a fact that's only made clear in the first couple scenes where there's snow on the ground and Tony Bennett singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" in the background. Once the movie shifts to Isla Nublar, there are no further hints of anything Christmas-y.

* ''Franchise/XMen'' does this quite a bit. Several issues bring up the holiday but mainly just as background scenery, especially in Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run.
** #98 starts off during Christmas, but any Christmas tropes related to it are quickly forgotten when the Sentinels attack. After that it quickly moves past the holiday by at least a couple days and has the arc move on for a few more issues, ending with the famous moment where Jean is transformed into the Phoenix.
** #119, despite being titled "The Night Before Christmas," only takes place on the day at the very end, and most of it is focused on the team stopping a terrorist in Japan.
** #143, Byrne's final issue, only brings up the holiday early on despite the entire issue actually taking place on Christmas Eve this time. You'd be forgiven for forgetting it with the story focusing on Kitty Pryde[=/=]Spryte trying to survive a demon from another dimension that's invaded the mansion while she's alone.
