* In the early hours of Christmas Eve, 1910, Hawes Junction station on the Settle to Carlisle line was a hive of activity. Several locomotives that were used to assist trains on the steep climbs were due to head back, two of them northbound. However, the signalman forgot about them, and likely had trouble seeing them with the driving rain. He cleared the line for an overnight express to Glasgow, and the two locomotives, on the same line, set off. The express, with clear signals, passed the station and caught up to them a mile further on. The front two coaches were crushed, and the gas lighting caught fire. Twelve passengers died.

SnowMeansDeath is a frequently used motif in such settings. BadSanta and AnAssKickingChristmas are more humorous/badass takes on the concept. The Christmas section of HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday has some of the most brutal examples.

examples. CrappyHolidays is a downplayed version; characters aren't in any danger, but aren't having any fun either.

* Yes, '''Franchise/{{Batman}}''' gets his own folder. Christmas is '''''NEVER''''' a happy time for Batman. Not only is it an emotional time for him since the loss of his parents, but {{supervillain}}s LOVE to stir up crap during Christmas time(especially guys like TheJoker, Mister Freeze and the Calendar Man). Here's a few examples of Batman stories set in Christmas time, both in comics and other media:

* The 1-hour Christmas movie for ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' has the gang go through this in spades: Charlie discovers that his mom is a whore, Mac learned that all his Christmas gifts were stolen from other families, and Dennis and Dee go through hell every year since Frank intentionally buys the gifts they want for himself and intentionally ruins them just to harass them. Things suddenly [[HopeSpot look up near the end]] when Frank actually undergoes a genuine HeelFaceTurn and actually does try to give the gang a good Christmas, making it look like for the first time they'll receive a happy ending... and then the CruelTwistEnding sets in since it's no way [[StatusQuoIsGod this series is ever going to allow that]].
