some xmas genders
1. In "A Christmas Carol," all the ghosts go by "it" pronouns, because the Victorians thought that was grammatically correct for ghosts, thinking of them as sexless. The Ghost of Christmas Past in particular is described as looking like an old man at some moments and a girl at others.
2. The part in "It's A Wonderful Life" where Mary Bailey tells her husband George she's pregnant, and George says, "Is it a boy or a girl?" and Mary nods and replies "Mm-hm!"
3. In some parts of Germany, the tradition of Christmas gifts being brought by the Christ Child (Christkind), who, as a result of a game of telephone on a cultural level, is not the baby boy Christ Jesus, but is a different entity a young woman.
