Why not say it all 8 nights? We say it by the night and day time megillah reading! –  Double AA Dec 20 '11 at 2:27
    
We'll that's the same reason we say birkot haTorah every day because it's a new day. However, here it was ONE miracle. –  Hacham Gabriel Dec 20 '11 at 2:28

The Gemara gives an answer in Shabbat 23a

נס כל יומי איתיה.

which rashi there interprets to mean that the miracle continued happening the entire 8 days so we say the bracha over the course of the entire 8 days.
