Christmas Every Day is a 1996 made-for-TV movie, and notably the first one to premiere as part of the 25 Days of Christmas programming event on Family Channel. The plot, similar to the movie Groundhog Day, is loosely based on the 1892 short story of the same name.

The 2006 ABC Family movie Christmas Do-Over is a remake with an adult protagonist.


Billy Jackson is not having a good Christmas. He got a basketball and just can't make a jump shot. His Uncle David is coming to town to open a Valu-Mall, which will put his dad's store out of business. When he tells his little sister, Sarah, that there is no Santa, she makes a wish that it would be Christmas every day. He now has to relive Christmas Day over and over again.
