* For still others, the holidays can bring unwanted social obligations, forcing them to spend time with their DysfunctionalFamily or pretend to have fun with hated bosses and coworkers at the company holiday "party" when they'd much rather be home alone chugging beer and watching cartoons in their underwear ({{or so I heard}}).

See also TheScrooge, another character who is usually a Christmas hater, but usually doesn't care about or ignores the holiday rather than outright cursing it. Opposite to TheAntiGrinch, who ''loves'' Christmas, but ends up nearly destroying it unintentionally.

* [[ComicBook/GreenLantern Larfleeze]] once went on a rampage against {{Mall Santa}}s and tried to melt the North Pole after he waited all Christmas Eve. After Hal Jordan convinces him that the spirit of Christmas was about giving, Larfleeze decided that he hated the Christmas spirit. [[spoiler:What he really wanted was for Santa to [[JerkassWoobie give him his family]].]]
* There was a SpiderMan villain called the Black Tarantula who got [[BerserkButton very angry]] when his henchman put up a Christmas tree and told him to take it down (then ''knocked'' it down before he could) saying that he didn't want it because Christmas was a children's holiday and "there are no children here!" (Of course we later learn there was a [[HiddenDepths deeper meaning to this.]] [[spoiler:The title of Black Tarantula was [[LegacyCharacter a tradition passed down from father to son over many centuries]], and when his wife found out about his criminal activities and that he intended for their son to inherit the title, she ran away, taking their son with him. The loss of his wife and son caused him inner turmoil that made him lash out at anything that reminded him of it.]]

* [[WebAnimation/Eddsworld Tom]]. Dear GOD Tom. Him being raised a Jehovah's Witness can make this trope seem [[JustifiedTrope justified]], but it gets to the point where he actively seeks to [[ExaggeratedTrope destroy a city thanks to his loathing of Christmas]]. It takes Edd, Matt, Santa and [[BadSanta Zanta Claws]] to stop him to shooting Santa's hijacked sled down with a [[HumongousMecha giant robot]].
