Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas (1999)

Overall, a wonderful set of three stories to watch with Ben and Ada.

Donald Duck: Stuck on Christmas
Groundhog's Day type story. Happy ending [the Wikipedia says this cartoon was "[i]nspired by the 1892 short story 'Christmas Every Day' by William Dean Howells."]
A Very Goofy Christmas
My eyes teared up throughout the end. With Max dressing up for his dad... that's so nice.
Mickey and Minnie's Gift of the Magi
The ending of the Mickey cartoon was obvious from early on. But I suppose still a nice message regardless. [Apparently the cartoon is based on a short story by O. Henry called "The Gift of the Magi" upon which many adaptations have been made. As such "the plot and its twist ending are well known" so it's less of a surprise I saw it coming, as I've probably seen it before. Looking through the Wikipedia list of Other Media, I would have definitely seen the Futurama episode "Xmas Story."]
