* {{Nickelodeon}} series ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'' has a holiday episode where the people of Chalk Zone celebrate something called "Chris-hanukah-mas" and "Rama-kwanzaa-dan". No mention of Tet anywhere, though. Apparently, Buddhism doesn't exist in Chalk Zone.

** This series' closest counterpart to Christmas is 'Giftmas', when Papa Santos grants wishes to nice people who believe him and would even make Kuzco emperor again had it been wished by someone in the nice list. However, Papa isn't all-knowing, considering his naughty list has 'Yzma' and 'Amzy' as second and third naughtiest. (At least until Kuzco started to work his way out of the list)

* ''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.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4741006/1/Shadow-Realm-Holiday Shadow Realm: Holiday]]'', is a one-chapter fic set in an AlternateReality where [[Anime/YuGiOh Duel Spirits]] live; while there is no Christmas in this world (justified, as there is nothing similar in their history), the fic shows the residents celebrating All Shadow's Beginning, which is similar.

* ''VideoGame/StardewValley'' has a few in-game holidays 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 UK ''{{Thundercats}}'' comics introduced Rammastide, which while technically celebrates when Third Earth was liberated from Mumm-ra, is basically Christmas in blue and gold. It also has the bad luck of being the day the Metokangmi walks around mourning its dead mate. And it's preferred path happens to be right through the Cats' Lair, which ends up working out because the Metokangmi is basically a gigantic feline yeti.

* In the original ''WonderWoman'' the Amazons celebrated Diana's Day at winter solstice. One woman was chosen by lots to play the Goddess and distribute presents while the others are entitled to try to unmask her and take over the Goddess role. Those who try and fail are tied up, of course, and have to dress up as deer on the following day for a mock hunt. The "deer" are caught, "cooked" and served, whereupon they have to dance. Hey, it's Marston.

* One of the ''GarrettPI'' novels mentions White Day, a fantasy-world counterpart to Valentine's Day. Different in that it's a custom to give boxes of candy to one's good friends as well as to one's beloved.
** White Day is a real holiday in Japan; it's celebrated a month after Valentine's Day and is a day when men are expected to reciprocate for the gifts they got on Valentine's Day.

* The Starlight Celebration also appears in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV''. This time it is started by a Santa Clausque commander of Ishgard and his knights bringing succor to kids, and also like ''XI'', the ''in game'' religions don't seem to be referenced with the holidays. Also like XI, they also incorporate other holidays into the game in all but name.

* ''DinoRiders'' had an episode where the Valorians stranded on Earth celebrate "[[ThanksgivingEpisode Thanksgiving]]." Since they are time travelers from the future and know of Earth's prehistoric animals, it is never clear whether they are HumanAliens, or merely humans who settled on Valoria at some point. If the latter, then their celebration may actually ''be'' a descendant of the American UsefulNotes/ThanksgivingDay holiday. If the former, then it is merely their own home-grown holiday for giving thanks.
