Christmas Every Day

by Dano Madden and Jenny Sternling
(adapted from the short story by William Dean Howells)
Directed by Jenny Sternling

There once was a little girl who loved Christmas very, very much. All those presents! Candy! More candy! And more presents! She loved it so much that the little girl wished for Christmas to come every day! And so, the girl began writing letters to The Christmas Fairy, begging that her wish be granted. Impressed by the girl’s letters, the Fairy agreed: from now until forever, it shall be Christmas every day! At first, nonstop Christmas is exciting and fun! But trouble soon begins and the girl realizes that no wish comes without great cost. With the help of The Christmas Fairy, the little girl finds the courage to set things right and discovers, at last, what the magic of Christmas truly means.
