Since black friday, the start of the Christmas season, was the other
day, I decided to see how many Christmas-themed episodes and movies I
can think of:

Tokyo Godfathers: I have heard various people proffer the opinion that
this is the best Christmas movies out there, and even one of the best
overall anime movies as well. I have not seen it, so I cannot say if I
agree or not, but perhaps sometime this season I will try to find it and
check it out.

Daughter of Darkness: This movie isn't really a Christmas movie, but
when the antagonist discovers that Yosho(?) is living on earth, Tenchi,
Ryoko, et. al, are having a Christmas party.

Ranma 1/2: One of the regular episodes and one of the OVAs is Christmas
Themed.

Pretty Cure: I can't think of a Christmas episode offhand, but as
popular as Christmas is in Japan, and since the Pretty Cure franchise
has a lot of episodes (over 500, I think), there has to be at least 1
episode that is Christmas themed, I would guess.

One Piece, Bleach, Naruto: See the above comment about Pretty Cure.

Yumeiro Patissierre: There is an episode where Ichigo makes a Christmas
cake that looks like a Christmas tree instead it being a small boxed
square cake, but she drops it because of her clumsiness, and since she
doesn't have time to remake the fancy cake, ends up making a small boxed
square cake anyway.

Itsudatte my Santa: I whole heartedly support cute girls being
apprentice Santas.

Love Hina: One of the love hina specials is Christmas themed.

Ai yori Aioshi: I don't think there is a Christmas themed regular
episode, but there is a Christmas special, I believe.

Maria sama ga miteru: If I recall correctly, there is an episode in the
first season that the girls are going to the Christmas party at the Rose
mansion, but the actual party is not shown (it has been a while since I
have watched that particular series). In the fourth season, there is an
episode that has the entire party, Yumi and Scachiko going the Christmas
mass, etc.

Chrono Crusade: I am pretty sure there is a Christmas themed episode in
this as well, though it has been a real long time since I have seen this
show as well.

I am sure there are other Christmas episodes/movies but those are all
the ones I can think of right now.

The third (? I think) season of Shakugan no Shana had an episode
in which a Christmas Eve(?) date played a significant role.

More recently, the second season of Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love!
had a Christmas episode, including a theme-appropriate MoTD, even
though it didn't air anywhere near the Christmas season.

You have to do that! Excellent Xmas story as the socially rejected,
un-housed heroes support mother and child.

Sort of a prequel where the hero is visited by Santa garbed
heroine or just a Santa doppelganger looking like the heroine.

Kimagure Orange Road has a notable one as Kyousuke repeats the occasion
until the finale. Just a has difficult time to make up his mind. TV
series but it breaks continuity as does the
New Year's special episode but it is supposed to be a movie project.

In Maison Ikkoku the special Xmas episode involves Godaii losing
a rock inherited from Kyoko's first husband and finding it before he
gets to the Christmas Party at the bar. It advances his position in
Kyoko's eyes.

In Genshiken no special Xmas episode but the club has to do
good works over the holiday cutting their chances at the ComicMarket,
this is because Saki started inadvertently started a fire.

Very common theme is need for extra money for presents and
heroes very apt to seek part-time work selling Christmas cakes and
doing other jobs.

I'm pretty sure that Oh My goddess has one. It's the reason Keiichi is out working so he can buy a ring for Belldandy.

Chocotto Sister: the first and last episodes are set at Christmas, and the
first episode starts off with the sister being personally delivered by
Santa to her new big brother as a Christmas present.

The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya takes place in December and in the end the cast celebrates Christmas. I guess it would be better to classify it as a Winter/December themed movie but Christmas is in it so whatever.
