* Lots of people in majority-Christian societies refrain from observing Christmas, of course. In most cases this is not so much due to any active misanthropy or dislike for the holiday itself but for the very simple reason that they're not Christians (although this fact is [[EveryoneIsChristianAtChristmas sometimes ignored by popular culture]]). This includes adherents of other religions as well as atheists, agnostics, anti-theists, neo-pagans, etc. Such people may or may not be okay with a [[SantaClausmas completely secularized]] version of the holiday, although in such cases arguments about the TrueMeaningOfChristmas may be expected to come into play.

* [[http://www.firstpost.com/world/nothing-to-do-with-islam-somalia-bans-christmas-and-new-years-celebrations-2557660.html The Somali government outright outlawed Christmas celebrations in 2015]], claiming the holiday "had nothing to do with Islam". How they plan to enforce this edict is unclear at present. (Almost every citizen of Somalia itself is Muslim, but there are thousands of non-Muslim African Union peacekeepers in residence.)

* The 90's cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' had a ChristmasEpisode where {{Wolverine}} took on this role.
* Bowser Koopa, {{Mario}}'s nemesis, is this kind of character in the ''SuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' ChristmasEpisode. He doesn't reform at the end, though oddly in the later ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'' Christmas episode, he doesn't seem to hate the holiday as much (although he does rip off the TropeNamer).

The Grinch, that's who. He hates Christmas and he'll keep [[KickTheDog kicking (Christmas themed) dogs]] until everyone knows it. Usually, when it's revealed exactly [[FreudianExcuse why they hate Christmas]], it's either something [[DisproportionateRetribution completely petty]] (like having never gotten the gift they wanted) or something [[DarkAndTroubledPast downright tragic]] (like a lack of parental love).

* Dramatically deconstructed in the BBC mockumentary ''Film/TheDayBritainStopped''. The rail union called on a nationwide strike on 20 December 2003, resulting in [[{{Mundanger}} all of Britain's motorways being gridlocked to a standstill (from the extra amount of cars), people's lives and the nation's infrastructure severely disrupted,]] [[SoaplandChristmas and a severely overworked air traffic control office commiting an error that led into a two-plane collision over a residential area of London.]] And this is not counting the continued disruption (that lasted for at least a week) on the roads/rails as well as people travelling to/from overseas. While we don't really see the union's side of thing, it is quite clear that, intentionally or otherwise, the rail workers' union and their decision to go on strike ruined the nation's whole Christmas season in very horrific ways.
