* AnAesop: Having Christmas every day no longer makes the holiday special, but you can keep the spirit of Christmas all year around.



* CanonForgeiner: Aunt Gertie only exists in this special. Somewhat odd given that Donald has quite a few established relatives.

* AnAesop: The holidays are found in what we can give to others, not what we can receive.



* ManChild: Pete acts this way after Santa Claus buries him in snow, asking where his squirty gun and yo-yo are in a childish whine. Goofy's also a man child, but a far more endearing and well-meaning one.

* MeanBoss: Mortimer, who plays the role of the boss of the company Minnie and Daisy work at, doesn't have a HairTriggerTemper, but he apparently gives his own employees lousy payments. For christmas, he gives Minnie a hefty fruitcake rather than a bonus, leaving her without money to buy a gift for Mickey.

Added DiffLines:

* YankTheDogsChain: Pete steals back all of Mickey's money when a family chooses a tree other than one of his expensive 10-footers, leaving him broke with nothing to get for Minnie.


* IndecisiveDeconstruction: The short tries to deconstruct the idea of parents telling children about Santa Claus: Pete tells Max that Santa isn't real. Max examines the facts and ends up concluding that Pete probably is right. Goofy and Max eventually lose their faith in Santa Claus, but they think it's okay, as they have each other. The deconstruction doesn't go all the way when [[YesVirginia it turns out that Santa is real after all]].


* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Instead of screaming his head off and flying into a rage, Donald is very withdrawn and sad after everyone's Christmas is ruined. This is what makes the boys [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone realise how low they sunk.]]

* GiftOfTheMagiPlot: The third story’s plot, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as per its title.]] Pete takes back all the money Mickey was using to buy a chain for Minnie’s watch after offering a tree that’s not one of his ten-foot ones, leaving him to trade his harmonica for the chain at the department store. However, it turns out Minnie has traded her watch for a case for Mickey’s harmonica, so the gifts they got each other are essentially useless, but what matters is they have each other.

** Mortimer also appears in this short, but compared to his usual obnoxious CasanovaWannabe personality in other Disney cartoons, here he is Minnie's tight-fisted boss with a posh accent.
