Cosmo and Wanda: Merry Christmas to all, and to all...
Timmy: One per year!

— The show's main characters at the end of the episode

"Christmas Every Day!" is the first Christmas episode of the Nickelodeon animated series The Fairly OddParents, produced as the seventh and last episode of the show's first season and originally aired on December 9, 2001. As the title suggests, the plot is based on the 1892 short story of the same name. The episode aired annually on Nickelodeon through 2015 and has aired on NickToons since 2002.



It's Christmas Eve in Dimmsdale, and Timmy Turner laments to Cosmo and Wanda the fact that Vicky is babysitting him while his parents are out finishing their Christmas shopping. However, he then adds that Christmas is his favorite day of the year, as in addition to the tremendous amount of gifts he receives from Santa Claus, it is also the one day of the year he is guaranteed that his parents will stay home and not have Vicky babysit him. To further that, he's more than happy to show Vicky the door once his parents come home, leaving her to face being torched by Chester and A.J. when they notice her as a snowman in her likeness. When Christmas morning arrives, Timmy expresses through song to his fairy godparents that he wishes it was Christmas every day. Despite their reluctance, they have no choice but to grant his wish in accordance to Da Rules.

At first, Timmy is thrilled to have Christmas every day, but things soon take a sour turn, as he begins to notice when he starts receiving less and less presents for obvious reasons. And because Christmas now falls on every day, all the schools, stores, and businesses remain closed, and everybody has become so sick of Christmas that the armed forces are working to shoot Santa's sleigh down once they see him. Even worse, the mascots for the other holidays (led by the Easter Bunny and consisting of Baby New Year, Cupid, and The April Fool) are furious that their respective holidays can no longer come.

Timmy meets the other holiday mascots.

Unfortunately, Timmy cannot reverse his wish, because every Christmas Eve, all the fairies in Fairy World transfer most of their magic to Santa so that he can make his annual journey, and they do not get it back till Christmas is over; obviously, since Christmas is still going on, Cosmo and Wanda cannot reverse the wish. The angry holiday mascots, planning to banish Santa to the non-existent date of February 33rd, kidnap Cosmo and Wanda (in order to use what remains of their magic against Santa's) and take off in the April Fool's bus.

Using a high-speed snowmobile, Timmy makes his way to Greenland, all the while getting help from other kids who celebrate Christmas he contacts through the Internet, soon catching up with the holiday mascots. Disguising himself as another holiday mascot named Birthday Boy, Timmy tricks the mascots into letting him on their bus, then slows them down by puncturing their tires with Cosmo and Wanda's crowns. He makes it to Santa's workshop in time to warn Santa of the oncoming attack, but the mascots soon catch up.

Santa's attempts to fight them off are futile, and his magic is soon sucked out of him and transferred to the Easter Bunny, who prepares to blow Santa to February 33rd with an egg-shaped bomb. Fortunately, the kids who helped Timmy in his journey show up, along with every other child with Internet access, and they help him make it clear to the holiday mascots that they do love their respective holidays as well (just not as much as they love Christmas). The mascots, realizing the error of their ways, give Santa's magic back to him, but it doesn't change the fact that it's still Christmas. Timmy then rallies all the kids to tell Santa that what they want is for it to be December 26th, which they do. Thanks to that, the endless Christmas finally ends, and things return to normal, and to make sure no other kid makes the same wish Timmy made, the Fairy Council adds a new rule to Da Rules, forbidding fairies from granting "Christmas Every Day" wishes again. However, to make amends for the whole mess, Timmy, Cosmo, Wanda, and the other holiday mascots have to deliver the Christmas presents next year while Santa and his wife take a vacation in Hawaii.



The cover to the storybook adaptation.

  • When aired in the United States, Vicky's head is transformed into a pink gift box at the end of the intro sequence. In the international broadcasts of the episode, her head is instead transformed into Santa's head.
  • A scene at the beginning of the episode depicts a mailman and a dog fighting and then suddenly becoming friends because it's Christmas; this appears to be a reference to a similar scene from the beginning of Frosty the Snowman. Vicky also calls Timmy "Frosty the Snow-Twerp" about a minute later.
  • This is the only episode in which the April Fool was voiced by Brian Dunkleman. In all of the character's subsequent appearances, Daran Norris provided the voice.
