Compare and contrast DoTheyKnowItsChristmasTime, when the characters learn the TrueMeaningOfChristmas only for it to become a ForgottenAesop in the next episode. Also contrast YouMeanXmas, when there's a non-Christian holiday that just so happens to correspond to Christmas.

* As most religious folks can attest, many people who don't often go to church do make it a point to go to Christmas services. Churches generally offer special services with concerts or other presentations to attract them and hopefully persuade them to come more regularly.

* One holiday-themed issue of ''ComicBook/UncannyXMen'' has Kitty Pryde helping Nightcrawler decorate the mansion for Christmas. When Colossus brings up the fact that Kitty is Jewish, she shrugs and says that she just enjoys the festivities and the presents.

* The reason why there's only two examples in the anime section, is that UsefulNotes/ChristmasInJapan is more or less entirely secular although some Buddhist families justify it by teaching about Hoteiosho, which is basically if Santa was Buddhist.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': In the ChristmasEpisode, Soun and Genma complain some about Christmas, saying they much preferred things when Buddhism was the religion of choice in Japan. Upon being reminded that there is typically a big dinner served on Christmas, they suddenly change their tunes and start chanting "Hooray for Christmas!"

** Also in "Regional Holiday Music," played with when [[ItMakesSenseInContext Annie gets brainwashed into joining the Glee club]]. She tries to seduce Jeff into joining by putting on a SexySantaDress and acting like a BrainlessBeauty who knows absolutely nothing about Christmas due to being a Jew. Jeff is more squicked than anything; it's been established that he's attracted to her because she's intelligent and mature, so lapsing into BabyTalk and calling him "daddy" is the exact opposite of what he wants.
--->'''Jeff:''' You are an intelligent woman. Also you're Jewish.

** Invoked on the episode where Lisa becomes a Buddhist ([[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/TheSimpsonsS13E6SheOfLittleFaith "She Of Little Faith"]]). Utilizing the fact that it's Christmas ([[DoTheyKnowItsChristmasTime even if there's been no clue that it's the season on the entirety of the episode until this is mentioned]]), the family makes the house as nice as possible and essentially lure Lisa back with presents (Lisa, both because she learns to be more open-minded with other people's religious beliefs and because she wants to get presents, pretty much does).
