* Happens at the end of ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw'''s ChristmasEpisode when most of the cast ends up snowed in at the mall during a blizzard.


* At the end of the ''Series/{{House}}'' episode "Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don't," [[HollywoodAtheist House]] (an asshole who wouldn't want to attend any Christmas event he was invited to) and [[NiceJewishBoy Wilson]] (who is about to go through his third divorce) go to House's apartment and order Chinese food on Christmas.

You're Jewish (and not of the [[InformedJudaism Informed]] sect). Or Muslim. Or atheist. Or TheGrinch. Or you're estranged from your family, or simply don't have a family. Or you're a hungry Jehovah's Witness looking for a quick bite after the meeting. [[TropeCodifier Or a pack of dogs just ate the massive home-cooked dinner.]] Or you either burned the roast when you attempted to use OvenLogic, or it's still frozen solid because you (or your spouse) failed to take it out of the freezer in a timely manner. Or you're just plain alone and bored. Whatever it is, the usual Christmas festivities are simply not possible for you. It's just another miserable winter's day, except that since you're off work (if you're lucky) you have even less to do than usual.

Added DiffLines:

* Like many tropes about Jewish families, this one showed up in ''Series/BrooklynBridge''. The Berger/Silver family had Christmas dinner at a Chinese restaurant and the grandfather, utterly unsure of what blessing to say over the meal, settles for "''Boruch ata...'' Chinese food."
