* ''Literature/Discworld'': ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'' takes place entirely on [[YouMeanXmas Hogswatchnight]], although a lot of it is spent in various AnthropomorphicPersonification realms where time doesn't pass normally (including the "congruent reality" that enables the Hogfather to visit the entire Disc on a single night). Some other Discworld books have short time spans too. ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' has a timespan of a few days; the game at the end of the book is within the same week as the wizards' discussion at the beginning.
