* In ''Webcomic/AliceAndTheNightmare'', the Wonderlandians celebrate Lights Festival, which happens in winter and involves exchanging gifts. In an unique spin, it has its own reason to be (unification of Suit tribes) and its own paraphenalia (lanterns).

* Localities in the SocietyForCreativeAnachronism often accommodate their members' desire for a Christmas party by scheduling a winter solstice "revel", an event that many of their personas in its AnachronismStew would have celebrated in one way or another. Too often for SCA [[ReadTheFreakingManual authenticity mavens']] taste, [[AristocratsAreEvil someone in power]] insists that the obligatory evergreens include an [[ArtisticLicense obvious Christmas tree]], which not only contravenes the SCA rule against favoring any religion but is significantly later than the Society's chosen pre-17th century period. But the feasting, dancing, and rejoicing manage to survive such contretemps.

* In ''GuildedAge'', almost every race seems to have its own holiday around the winter solstice.The Gastonians have Axemas, as well as a Passing Day for giving gifts to the poor. The gnomes have (well, had) Spanner's Eve, the trolls have a Tectonicalia (similar to the Saturnalia in Ancient Rome), the Savasi dwarves have an Olympics-like competition, and the gnolls have another gift-giving holiday called Traal. Both the puns and the coincidental timing of the celebrations make perfect sense once it's revealed where Arkerra came from.

* In the abridged ''Franchise/{{X-Men}}'' series by Lets Burn Holes we get "Jesus Christ's Birthday" in place of the Christmas special, with lines such as "Let's go home and sing some Jesus Christ Carols!". And it ends with Beast (Professional JerkAss) and the Morlocks convincing Wolverine, Storm and Jubilee that Jesus Christ has been reborn on Earth. It also features such traditional Jesus Christ's Birthday traditions as ice skating, shop lifting, AIDS jokes and cannibalism.
