When little Lucy wishes it were Christmas every day, "forever and ever", her dad tells the cautionary tale of her grandmother Tilly, who, as a little girl, made the very same wish, and the dire consequences that occurred after her wish was granted.
This is one my favorite animated Christmas TV specials. It is about a little girl who makes a wish that everyday was Christmas. Unfortunately for her, and the rest of the earth, she gets her wish, but the Christmas Fairy who grants it was smart enough to limit it to just one year. The story is quite hilarious as you watch the characters getting extremely bored with opening gifts every day. In the end the girl realizes that part of what makes Christmas special is that it occurs only once a year. I like this cartoon, because it not just another "make you feel good" Christmas special. It shows (probably unintentionally) how tedious Christmas can be too - especially if it happened every day. I usually watch it on the night of the 25th, just when I really get tired of Christmas and am glad it is over. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find it available for sale as either DVD or VHS. I have a VHS tape that I recorded of the air many years ago. But, if you want to see it, it is usually shown every year on TV. You have to really look for it because it not well known and is not advertised.
