"Every Day Can't Be Christmas" is a song about how Christmas wouldn't be as special if it was every day. It was sung twice in the 1996 Sesame Street special Elmo Saves Christmas, first by Santa Claus in an attempt to convince Elmo that every day can't be Christmas, and later by Elmo (in a duet with Lightning) after he becomes convinced that Christmas should only be one day a year.

Elmo's version of the song was included in A Sesame Street Christmas Carol.
