** 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).

** One beloved religious Christmas song, "O Holy Night", had a Jewish composer (Adolphe Adam), an atheist who wrote the original French lyrics (Placide Cappeau), and a Unitarian minister who wrote the English lyrics (John Sullivan Dwight).

* Averted by a lot of [[WebVideo/GameGrumps Dan Avidan's]] stories discussing his upbringing; at one point he talks about how his family would all go on a trip around Christmas time because "Jews get really bored on Christmas", and he's also talked about celebrating Hanukkah as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' spends its whole ChristmasEpisode with [[TheDitz Billy]] an obsessed lover of Christmas, only to offhandedly mention in TheStinger that he actually celebrates Hanukkah.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' spends its whole ChristmasEpisode with [[TheDitz Billy]] an obsessed lover of Christmas, only to offhandedly mention in TheStinger that he actually celebrates Hanukkah. However, from the way that Billy says it, it sounds like he and his family only celebrate it as a way to get more presents.



* Averted (somewhat preachily) in ''Westernanimation/{{Static Shock}}'': everybody in Virgil's religiously diverse neighbourhood takes part in Christmas celebrations... but also Hannukkah, and even Ramadan events.

* ''ComicBook/{{Shazam}}'': During the New 52 reboot, Freddy Freeman celebrates Christmas with the rest of his foster family (but since no mention is ever made of his Judaism, it's uncertain whether the New 52 version of Freddy is even meant to be Jewish, despite the fact that it used to be one of his most defining characteristics).

* 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.

* Subverted and averted in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series. Only Christians are expected to observe Christmas (and the Rector is not terribly chuffed with the sort of parishioner who turns up only for Christmas and Easter, and has worked to church them better). But there ''is'' a Christian, and indeed effectively Anglican (after all, the Church of England ''is'' Established), service � annually � in which Sikh, Muslim, and unchurched characters ([[spoiler: and the retired [[UsefulNotes/NepaliWithNastyKnives Gurkhas]]]]) living in the District, all participate. It's not Christmas. It's [[UsefulNotes/ThePoppy Remembrance Sunday]], and no bones about it.

* The "Secret Santa" episode of ''{{Warehouse 13}}'' puts a dreidel by the name of Creator/SaulRubinek (the actor playing Artie) in the credits, and Claudia does give a Jewish prayer at the end of the episode. But most of Artie and Claudia's plotline in the episode revolves around the Christmas present she is trying to get him (which ends up being both a musical instrument and a reunion with his father).

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]], or at least exported on ''SportsNight''. Dan gets the crew together for a Passover Seder despite the fact that he and Jeremy are the only Jewish characters.

* So were Mel Tormé (who wrote "The Christmas Song"), Johnny Marks ("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree", among other seasonal ditties), J. Fred Coots ("Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town"), Jerry Herman ("We Need a Little Christmas"), George Wyle ("It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"), and Ray Evans ("Silver Bells"). Of course, it's worth pointing out that none of these are particularly ''religious''-themed Christmas songs.

* ''Roleplay/DCNation'' works with this yearly with the annual compromise at the Dibny household. Ralph gets to decorate (copious amounts of purple are involved), and he gets to be a big, stretchy kid. (This has been amplified since their daughter came into the picture) Topping the tree is a "only a good idea in the 50's" electric menorah with bright purple lights. Sue just stands back and lets him because she thinks it's side-splittingly funny to watch her hubby and daughter literally bounce around the house.
