* ''Main/XenaWarriorPrincess'' has "A Solstice Carol". This episode features orphans about to be evicted on Solstice eve, a solstice tree, a toy maker named Senticles who disguises himself with a red suit and a white beard and falls down a chimney, a king who hates the Solstice and has banned it, Xena and Gabrielle sneaking into his bedchamber to pretend to be the Fates and ghosts of past, present, future and convincing him to mend his evil ways. To top it all off, Gabrielle gives her donkey to a married couple with a child who look suspiciously like a few religious figures that will remain nameless, while a bright star hangs in the sky above. Seriously. Of course, fans of the show will tell you that this trope was just made for this show.

* ''TrintonChronicles'' has Yule instead of Christmas, though itís essentially the same minus the Christian overtones: there is no Christ or reason to have a mass for such a figure. Instead itís modeled after the Germanic celebration of Winter Solstice, complete with Yule Log and giant effigy burning.

** Less explicit are Lucky Weekend(St. Patrick's Day), Sweet Treats Weekend(Easter), and Special Treats Weekend (Thanksgiving). These are limied to special drops with no other events.
* The ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' series features mostly JapaneseHolidays, but (with the exception of New Year's) the real holiday names are ''never'' used. Valentine's Day and White Day become "Winter Thanksgiving" and "Spring Thanksgiving". Christmas Eve and Day become "Starry Night" and "Stocking Festival". That last bit is subverted in a few games where you can actually unlock a holiday called the Goddess Festival in honor of -- who else? -- the Harvest Goddess.

* ''VideoGame/StardewValley'', like [[Franchise/HarvestMoon the game series]] [[SpiritualSuccessor it is basically an unofficial installment of]], has its fair share of in-game holidays that are analogous to real-life ones. The Egg Festival is Easter, Spirit's Eve is Halloween, and the Feast of the Winter Star is Christmas (complete with a Secret Santa-like gift exchange).

** The name is a combination of New Year's Eve being "Hogmanay" in Scotland and "Watch Night" in traditionalist Christian communities (and possibly also "hogwash"); it is also on the Discworld (at least around the Circle Sea) the culmination of the pig-slaughtering season.
** It has other equivalents, too; for instance, the Soul Cake Days are a mix of Halloween ("trickle-treating" is mentioned by a small girl in ''Reaper Man'') and Easter (there's a "Soul Cake Duck" who lays chocolate eggs).

* RhettAndLink, who are Christians, played around with this trope on a collection of fake outtakes from a fake commercial. Rhett also mentioned in one podcast that he celebrates the Harvest Season as opposed to Halloween.
