Added DiffLines:

** The 2013 Christmas special is set on yet another ice planet, where it's constantly snowing over a town that's actually called Christmas.
** The 2014 Christmas special opens on a snowy Christmas Eve ([[spoiler: possiby AllJustADream]]) and is also partly set in the Arctic.
** It's not clear if the planet in the opening of the 2015 Christmas special is another ice world, or if it's just winter there, but it's snowing.

* [[TheOtherRainforest The Pacific Northwest]] has a good snowstorm about once a decade. But the wet, windy Decembers are enough for a carol ("Christmas in the Northwest") to have a chorus saying it's a "gift... trimmed in green"

* A popular song by the country group Music/{{Alabama}} has the line "It's Christmas in Dixie/It's snowing in the pines." Parts of Virginia and Tennessee, which are technically in the South, do get significant snowfall because of being in or near the Appalachian mountains, but [[DeepSouth the parts most people THINK of as "Dixie"]] (Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina) are usually far too warm for snow.

* The traditional English carol "In the Bleak Midwinter" posits these conditions ("Snow had fallen, snow on snow, / Snow on snow") at Christ's Nativity, although most Biblical scholars doubt the event actually took place in winter... which, in [[UsefulNotes/PalestinianTerritories Bethlehem]], wasn't likely to be snowy anyhow.

* Played straight in VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins, where a Christmas Eve blizzard conveniently empties Gotham so the only people on the streets are criminals and DirtyCops.

* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes''. Every single strip set in the winter has feet of snow, enough to make giant snow beasts. Calvin apparently lives in Northern Canada. Or in Ohio in the '60s, '70s, and early '80s, as Bill Watterson did. (Yes, there really was that much snow. Ohio, the northern part of the state in particular, gets quite a lot of snow due to the influence of Lake Erie.)

This is most often seen in HollywoodNewEngland, but will likely be the case in any setting if [[SoCalization your writers are from southern California]], which is a much warmer ecosystem and Christmas means pouring rain and flash floods. What little snow they do see is likely the dry, powdery kind from ski trips to Lake Tahoe, not realizing that snow elsewhere tends to be far more wet and heavy.
