Trivia

Christmas Every Day is a short story by William Dean Howells about a young American girl, whose wish that Christmas would come daily is granted for an entire year. It was published in Christmas Every Day and Other Stories Told for Children in 1892. See more »

Goofs

Sunrise on December 25th in Virginia is not until around 7:23 AM, so at 7:00 AM the sun would not be shining into Billy's room like it does in the movie when he wakes up on Christmas morning. See more »

Wonderful movie...gets me in the spirit every year!
25 October 2003 | by (Not London, Not England, Just Here) – See all my reviews

This movie may have not have been the winner of any Oscar, but still, it holds it's spot up there with a lot of other festive, made for tv movies, and always draws me to the couch with a bowl of popcorn while that special day approaches. This movie has all that a good Christmas fan will appreciate, and all that a good movie needs to be-well-good. A plot.

Young Billy just isn't in the spirit anymore. Due to a fateful wish his sister purposed to engage in Christmas every single day, Billy and his family (although he is in the only one who knows) engages in Christmas every single day for four of five days.

Some laughs.

The seconds manger scene was rather funny. And just some small quirky comments here and there. Oh yes. And of course I got a kick out of Billy's rich, spoiled cousin who was suppose to spend the day at Tinsel Town, but found herself in the prescene of carrots, mashed potatos, and peas instead.

A lesson.

To appreciate Christmas. To appreciate family. To appreciate life. To appreciate that this jubilant day can come but only once a year.

I love this movie and am so glad that ABCFamily airs it every year. I only wish it were out on VHS or DVD to buy. Maybe you can and I just don't know it?
