    Christmas Every Day

    I read this story a long time ago, it's kind of a reoccurring theme at Christmas, especially in movies, so I would have thought that someone would have brought it up by now. My copy was a story book with a ton of different Christmas stories in it, and this is one of the ones that I remember the most. Surely someone else has heard of it?

    I think I found the story by William Dean Howells: http://public.wsu.edu/~campbelld/wdh/xmaseday.html

    It was enjoyable to hear the daughter warn her father not to tell another pig story and her not letting him leave a story in an unacceptable ending state.

    That's the one! It's been a while since I read it but I did remember the whole fairy makes it Christmas everyday after she makes her wish. I will have to see if I can find more of his work.
