* ''Anime/TheBigO'''s Christmas special starts out grim as usual. We have a blind girl whose caretaker brother is a garbageman by day, and musician by night. They are starving, barely able to afford food at all. Then a mad scientist leaves a biological weapon in the boy's tip jar and it turns out the "weapon" is a massive self-growing Christmas tree made to teach people to love nature and each other. While the tree grows, everyone hears the boy's music, Roger and Dorothy exchange presents and have an impromptu dance party, and it snows. D'awww.

* There's a {{Punisher}} story where Frank is about to snipe a druglord, when suddenly there's a little girl pulling on his coat telling him she's lost her dad. Frank stares at her and puts the gun away. When they find her dad, he starts to thank him before recognizing his chest emblem and starting to panic. Frank tells him to calm down, that he should really teach his daughter not to talk to strangers, and then leaves.

* To commemorate a century from the beginning of the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne First World War]] and the [[TruthInTelevision Christmas Truce of December 1914]] (see "Real Life" section), British supermarket chain Sainsbury's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWF2JBb1bvM 2014 Christmas advert]] was a short film focusing on two groups of British and German soldiers celebrating the brief moments of Christmas respite in the harsh, snowed-in trenches of the western front. There was also an accompanying [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s1YvnfcFVs featurette]] on the period context of the events and the making of the advert.

--->'''Calendar Man:''' [[Literature/AChristmasCarol Ebenezer Scrooge]] was a saint compared to old Judge Harkness. Remember him, Batman? Gotham's HangingJudge, they called him. Even though the state had ruled me insane, Harkness swore he'd send me to the gallows. So you see, it was all a simple act of self-preservation. I could hardly be held responsible for strangling that street corner Santa Claus for his suit. I needed the disguise to sneak into the judge's Christmas Eve party. Harkness thought it was all in fun until "St. Nick'' caught him around the neck with a string of Christmas lights. The cops found him later, hanging from the elaborate light display of his own roof. Judgie almost looked like a cartoon himself alongside the comical reindeer, elves, and snowmen. I call that murder my "ChristmasSpecial".

** The ''Arkham'' incarnation of Calendar Man, who is much more dangerous than most (if not all) of his other incarnations, ensures that ''any'' Christmas in Gotham probably won't be ''that'' much [[LighterAndSofter lighter OR softer]] than the rest of the year. [[note]]Except possibly in the year ''Arkham Knight'' takes place, since he was feeling that his usual antics were getting a bit stale, so he made a New Years resolution to not strike on any major holidays that year and strike on more obscure ones instead.[[/note]]

* During UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, a Christmas truce broke out. A Christmas tree was erected in the middle of the battlefield and the Entente and Central Powers forces gathered together to sing Christmas carols. There was music, dancing, hot drinks, and a few friendly games of soccer shared. For one day there were no soldiers, just young men celebrating Christmas. However, the soldiers were under orders to shoot enemy soldiers who tried starting this, and not everyone disobeyed. Even in places where this did happen, some people took the opportunity of taking a closer look at enemy trenches then they usually could.
