  1. Top of my wish list is to get together with distant family and friends for a faith-based Christmas celebration with laughter, good times & wonderful food!

  2. Top of my list this Christmas is to gather together with loved ones to celebrate Christ’s birth and life

  3. I’m looking forward to the kids coming home and celebrating together. This seems like everyone’s top wish. (For material things, I’d like a couple of new scarves!)

  4. teressa oliver

    I really really want a Kindle fire

  5. Well, I’m going to have a house full of people for Christmas including 2 ladies from China that I’ve never met. I’m wishing for happiness and good memories for us all.

  6. Non-material: A peaceful, lovely time with family, as opposed to a stressful one. Really remembering the Reason for the season.

    Material: Hoping for a VHS/DVD converter!

  7. Linda Henderson

    At the top of my wishlist this holiday season is a winter coat. I lost my home and everything in it in the May tornado so I don’t have a coat anymore. So, that is definitely on the top of my list.

  8. Spending time that is meaningful with my family. Many thanks.

  9. cheryl c.

    At the top of my list is seeing my brother who lives far away.

  10. Hi! πŸ™‚ Well, I’d love to finally be able to get solar filters for my binoculars, so I can more easily see the sunspots on the Sun… πŸ™‚

    Lois

  11. On the top of my wish list this year is celebrating with my family but for myself another bookshelf and some new slippers would be nice.

  12. Mary Ward

    I’d love for my daughter to be able to be home for Christmas and not clear across the country.

  13. I am looking forward to staying as stress free as possible and really enjoying the season with my family.

  14. The one thing I want more than anything else, is snow on Christmas. I lived in Kansas since 1994 and we have only had two white Christmases. I’m from MN so I really miss that.

  15. I like how Laura answered… material, and non-material. πŸ˜‰

    Material – a nice bag for my mac.
    Non-material – a fun time with family.

  16. Catherine Lee

    I am too old for a wish list! If I had one, I might put high speed internet access at the top of it. I’ve got the slowest connection at home! And some good books for my Nook. But really, I have all the most important things already–family, a nice home, a great job.

  17. Michelle C

    I’m looking forward to spending extra time with my kids and extended family. On my wish list is a couple of big ticket items such as an iPad and a new camera lens, but more realistically, I would like Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.

  18. I already have what I need: a wonderful family and want them happy and healthy. For material items, I would love an ereader.

  19. Honestly, I don’t want gifts. My only wish is that I find a new job ASAP. Being unemployed sucks; it’s stressing me out. Plus, I want to be able to help my parents out financially, and I can’t do that without a new job.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. The top of my list is a Kindle Fire. I want one sooooo bad. Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. Colleen Turner

    I actually already got the top thing on my list for Christmas…a Kindle Fire! So, probably the next thing would be some books to put on the Kindle :). Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. Amanda W

    I want to spend time with my family who I only get to see once or twice a year.

  23. Being able to spend the day with all our kids and grandkids. We didn’t get to spend the day with our oldest son and his family the last 2 Christmases, so I’m really looking forward to it this year.

  24. Meghan Page

    Making sure my daughter knows the reason for the season– not presents.

  25. Gena Robertson

    My most important wish / desire is to make sure that my brand new daughter-in-law, who’s family is in Ohio (and she lives here in Washington State) feels loved, wanted and as little homesickness as I can possibly make it for her. She’s such a sweetheart, and having been a bride in her exact position 24 years ago, I know exactly how she’s feeling!
    Thank you for the generous giveaway opportunity!

  29. This would usually be a tough question, because I mean there are so many things you could put at the top of your wish list.. but I have to say THIS year, for me, it’d have to be the hope of having a child with my husband. πŸ™‚ We’ve been trying for some times, and well, I need some luck! πŸ˜›

    Thank you so much for your fabulous giveaway!
    sarah.hollis26(AT)gmail(DOT)com

  32. Lisa Fisher Walker

    That my four daughters will really embrace the meaning of Christmas and get along!

  34. Nedra Whittemore

    I am looking forward to a lovely day spent with my grown children and all my grandchildren and a brand new year that is hopefully less stress filled than 2011 has been.

  35. I am hoping the grandparents will help me pay for my daughters next semester at dance class. I’d hate for her to not be able to go.

  36. thegirlonfire27

    The thing I’m wanting most is to not have to work on Christmas. I would hate to miss spending the day with my family.

    I hope to see my sister and nephew, but it will only happen if she lets me bring my dog, since she has severe anxiety. Her vet gave her meds and they don’t work.
