Christmas, also celebrated as Weihnacht, is a celebration observed by certain Fillys. Common things associated with this Filly celebration is candles, red hats, and candy canes, and some Fillys only really appear in the setting of this event. Snow is also very common, but doesn't always play a major part.
In Filly canon
Regions that find themselves celebrating Christmas very often have a layer of snow on the ground, even if the region is located far to the south in the Filly world, such as Papillia.
According to the 13/2012 Filly magazine, the Elf Fillies have a Christmas wreath with candles on it. That particular year, Xander was given the honor of lighting them candles. The Unicorn Fillies also decorate a Christmas tree on Iridia.
In Filly merchandise
A number of Filly-themed advent calendars are released annually, sometimes multiple ones in the same year, practically all of them including Christmas-themed Fillys. The order of calendars and their release years, give or take one year, is:
|Year||Calendar and brand||Included Christmas Fillys||Notes|

|2012||Filly Ice Unicorn||Carina||Very little in the way of actual Christmas focus. Not even Carina is much Christmas-themed.|
|2012||Filly Elves||Christine, and Katie holding a wreath|
|2012||Filly (also known as Filly World)||Christmas Angel, Noëlle and Noélle||The only known advent calendar to specifically target an international audience, as opposed to just German-speaking markets.|

In addition, the years 2010 through 2013 had the Filly main magazine's December edition be Christmas-themed, and also including a toy of a character holding a Christmas object.
Many of the Christmas Fillys have names themed after Christmas and Weihnacht, a few of which such as Christmas Angel ( Weihnachtsengel) or Weihnachtsprinzessin ( Noëlle) should be obvious even to the Fillys themselves. Others require knowledge of French (Noëlle, Noélle) or Scandinavian (Julia), while other names yet are reminiscent of Christmas features that the Fillys presumably does not know of at all, such as Lucia.
