** One episode is about the pony equivalent of Christmas, "Hearth's Warming Eve". It's also about the founding fillies of Equestria using friendship to survive and defeat a long winter, making it more of a collision between a National Day and Thanksgiving which is just celebrated using typical Christmas decorations. As seen in "A Hearth's Warming Tale", it even has its own in-universe equivalent of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol''.

* Winterfair on the planet Barrayar in LoisMcMasterBujold's [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]] books, which involves gift-giving and family get-togethers. The Barrayarans are non-theists (if a bit superstitious) and there's no spiritual aspect. The Emperor's birthday celebrations are at roughly the UsefulNotes/ThanksgivingDay time of year, also -- at least for the current emperor.
** Complete with a CaptainErsatz SantaClaus, Father Frost. (Or not so ersatz. Father Frost is the Russian Santa equivalent, in what passes for real life, and one of the founding ethnicities of Barrayar is Russian.)

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' has "Naming Day", in which all the Matoran get a day off work and give each other gifts. One character mentions [[PhysicalGod Mata Nui]] coming down the transport chutes to deliver presents. Some Matoran are also able to [[MyNaymeIs change the spelling of their names]] on this day. This trope was enforced not by a holiday special, but because LEGO was threatened by legal action from Maori activists over the use of their words as character names, [[RealLifeWritesThePlot and the dev team needed an in-story excuse to change them.]]

** Heavensturn, a New years event, inspired by the Chinese Zodiac. Emissaries from the far east show up with tasks related to the new Zodiac year. Eeorza itself do not actually follow these views and are instead celebrating the the end of year; which means each of The Twelve; the local gods, have had a month and it's time to start over. Noteably an which has ties to the In-Universe religion ironically.
