*A holiday special in which the First Nicene Council is depicted as deciding matters of faith with an anime-esque kung-fu tournament that culminates in an epic superfight between Saint Nicholas and Arius

*A holiday special in which the infant jesus is visited by three illuminati who come bearing gold, frankincense, myrrh, and the secret knowledge of how to bring the dead back to life

EDIT:
now that I think of it, there's a lot of fun to be had with the wisemen...

*How about a cynical satire where the three wisemen are Yoda, Zordon, and Master Splinter and the gifts they're bringing are licensed toys that they're trying to sell to the audience (but since it's satire it's blatant that they're doing this)

*How about a special with some dubious extra wisemen. "And so the five wise men came from the east; Melchior, Caspar, Balthazar, Santa Claus, and Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him)"

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

A story about some kind of dysfunctional wizard or cultist (or perhaos a dysfunctional superhero or supervillain) who has the ability to use their own body as a voodoo doll. This is to say that by mutilating their own body they can cause a chosen target's body to become similarly injured.

EDIT:
Another idea:
Comedy skit: Fake Pilsbury commercial where Poppin Fresh is Jesus at the last supper. "Eat of my flesh"

American Horror story used the voodoo doll idea.

The infant Jesus is visited by three wise men. Unfortunately for him one of them is Richard Dawkins, who ushows that the "angels" are really guys in masks like the villain from a Scooby Doo cartoon, thus prompting the other wise men to take their gold and frankincense back.

Limited time dilation tech (using layers of superdense and superlight materials) becomes inexpensive; this isn't time travel tech proper, but instead just emphasizes the difference in time's flow rate between inside and outside. There isn't much call for this outside of couriership of freshness-sensitive products -- such as organs and (more importantly) pizza. In fact, major pizza chains decide that their 20-minutes-or-less guarantee is about freshness instead of service speed, and that therefore, in delivery trucks covered in these time-dilating microlayers, the time inside the truck is what counts rather than the time outside the truck. As a result, pizza delivery trucks are essentially the only product with this coating -- with layers at such a scale that a 20 minute delivery time typically results in a five minute old pizza. One day, a seismic event deep below the earth sudenly changed the density of the magma below a major city so quickly that a delivery down the street from the pizza place accidentally occurred before the pizza was ordered. The pizza's age was negative, and the pizza collapsed into a super-dense disc that sucked in time. It's up to the delivery boy to return the pizza to the appropriate time before it can prematurely age the whole city -- relying upon doing high speed doughnuts around the densest building in the city to rocket himself forward in time.

Horror/conspiracy-thriller in which Mark Zuckerberg is secretly a cthulhu cultist trying to bring about the end of the world and Facebook is named in honor of the necronomicon (really I just like the idea of Facebook being named after the Necronomicon)

EDIT:
Another idea:

Comedy skit- fake ad- "Baby Scatological", one of those baby dolls that poops and pees, but in this ad the fact that this is scatological is played up. Also the doll is indeed extra scatological, although I'm not sure how; I'm thinking it either needs to periodically be filled with real feces or else contains a miniaturized cloaca machine. Also the doll talks, but instead of crying or whatever it's an incongrous recording of a 40 year old fat guy from New York saying "I gotta take a shit"

Satirical horror comedy where the part of the generic evil cult is played by backwoods redneck Christians. The Bible is referred to as "The Christianomicon" throughout

EDIT:
Another idea:
Xmas special- The infant Jesus is visited by three kings: Elvis Presley (the King of Rock), Bob Marley (the King of Reggae) and Michael Jackson (the King of Pop) who possibly molests him

EDIT:
Another idea:
Good King Wenceslas goes completely off the rails after the second verse and ends up being about prima nocta

EDIT:
Another idea:
Wizard of Oz remake wherein the characters' issues are turned up to eleven. The Scarecrow is profoundly retarded, the Lion keeps pissing himself, the Tin Man is a Republican, etc.

EDIT:
Another idea:
I think I've posted something like this before but, a cross between Frosty the Snowman and The Evil Dead. the snowman is brought to life by black magic and Santa's explanation of christmas snow in the scene where he melts is reworded to echo the professor's recording from evil dead 1 about how the kandarian demons may lay dormant but can never truly die

The government concocts a harebrained scheme to print arbitrary amounts of new money to cover their debts without devaluing the currency by also printing at the same time an equal amount of negatively valued currency to balance the equation.

Edit:
This grew out of a thought I had that the governmemt ought to issue negative 100 dollar bills with pictures of Donald Trump on them

Combination of the nativity of Jesus, the Eddas, and A Christmas Story. As a child Odin is visited by three wisemen - manifestations of the wisdom god Mimir - who bring him a bb gun, a compass that fits into the stock, and a thing that tells time. He shoots his eye out but in doing so gains enlightenment

EDIT:
Another idea:
In the post-apocalypse curremcy is backed by a reverse metalic standard. Each bill is backed by a promise that if handed in the issuer will also take a certain amount of dangerous contaminated items off your hands as well.

EDIT:
Tagline for yuletide horror film:
"Christmas is about what's in your heart: Buckets and buckets of blood"

EDIT:
Another idea:
President Trump is viaited by two ghosts on christmas eve and when he remains incalcitrant in place of the third ghost comes Krampus, who drags him down to Hell.

EDIT
Another idea:
Comedy skit- Combined parody of Rudolph and LoTR: "Didn't I ever tell you about balrogs? Balrogs bounce!"

A cross-section of different social groups discovers, on the cusp of adulthood, that they must participate in a three month yearly magical battle against each other. At least one must die from each group, or else beings from beyond the veil destroy *all* participants.
