* This is a major part of the reason why the Great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 had such a profound effect on European culture and Enlightenment-era thought. Not only did a massive earthquake and tsunami devastate one of Europe's great capitals, it happened on November 1, All Saints' Day, one of the holiest days on the Catholic calendar. Nearly everybody was in church when the earthquake struck -- and furthermore, Lisbon's churches were mostly built tall in the center of the city, on soft riverbank sediments that underwent liquefaction during the earthquake, causing nearly all of them to collapse and kill the parishioners inside. The disaster has often been cited as the birth of modern atheism, as writers like Creator/{{Voltaire}} saw it as an affront to the idea of a just and loving God, or even of TheScourgeOfGod, given that the earthquake claimed the churches but spared the brothels (Lisbon's RedLightDistrict having been one of the least-damaged neighborhoods).
* Similarly, the 1964 Alaskan earthquake, the second most powerful earthquake ever recorded, struck on March 27, Good Friday. Coincidentally, the [[Literature/TheBible Book of Matthew]] also describes an earthquake occurring during Jesus' crucifixion (the event that Good Friday commemorates).

* While it's more a BlackComedy murder-mystery than an actual horror film, ''ArsenicAndOldLace'' takes place on Halloween.

* ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' drives home the point more than any other game in the series that [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the nuclear apocalypse]] known as the "Great War" happened in late October, because just about every shell of a house still standing in the Commonwealth has Halloween decorations out.
