** Japanese expatriates in Western countries can find themselves overwhelmed with both the social obligations of Christmas with their local friends ''and'' the social obligations of New Year's with friends and families back in Japan. This is because in Japan the New Year is a much bigger deal than in the West, and it is also almost always celebrated on the first of January since the 1860s.

* Sheldon from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' hates Christmas, claiming it's a knockoff of the pagan celebration of Saturnalia, bemoaning being forced to participate by his zealously religious mother as a child, etc., all to the annoyance of his roommate whom just wants some Christmas cheer because ''he'' was forced to write papers by his family on Christmas. It all comes to a head during a Christmas themed game of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' where Sheldon leaves Santa (whom they were supposed to be saving) to die, ruining the game and Christmas spirit for all involved, and declares that the real reason he hates Christmas is that Santa never granted him his wish of bringing his "Pop-Pop" (the only family member that encouraged his interest in science) back as a kid.
