In the closing "Holly Jolly Christmas," Burl Ives sings that there's a girl waiting for you (a boy) under the mistletoe: "kiss her once for me." When a woman sings that song, it becomes "kiss him once for me."
4. Santa Claus is Comin' to Town (1970): a heterosexual love story between the young-adult Santa Claus (then known as Kris Kringle) and the future Mrs. Claus (a teacher named Jessica). At least Kris (voiced by former teen idol Mickey Rooney) is a cute redhead.
5. The Year without a Santa Claus (1974). Mr.s Claus saves the day. And heterosexual monogamy.
1. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965): a reference to the Little Red-Haired Girl and Lucy's obsession with Schroeder, but otherwise about nurturing and friendship.
2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966): the Grinch is a green-furred outsider who dislikes Christmas, so he and his dog Max set out to ruin the holiday for the residents of Whoville by stealing all of their stuff. When he discovers that the townsfolk are happy together even without stuff, he relents, returns everything, and joins in the celebration.
No same-sex plotlines, but at least there's no hetero-romance, and few if any heterosexual nuclear families.
4. Billy and Mandy Save Christmas (2005): the cast of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy discover that Santa Claus has been transformed into a vampire. While looking for a cure, the Grim Reaper develops a homoromantic bond with a flamboyantly feminine, gay-coded vampire named Baron Von Ghoulish (voiced by gay actor Malcolm McDowell). They even sing about how much they like each other.
5. Prep & Landing (2009). Two high-tech Elves buddy-bond while saving Christmas.
