    A little peace and quiet.

    I know, I know - that's never going to happen. Well apart from stupid things that are never going to happen (world peace, mortgage paid off by Monday, winning the lottery that I never enter, peace and quiet) I really don't want any thing , I've got everything I really want - a wonderful husband and two lovely children. All I really want is my kids to have fun as, to me, that's what Christmas is about.

    That's nice. Me too. I'll take peace and goodwill over peace and quiet as I know that isn't an option around here either!

    I think it has to do with the age Chris and I are at. After a life of having worked to have many things, of having settled into a comfort zone, things that you can not buy seem more precious.

    Wishes seem to go away because they are just that, often unrealistic. You also realize how many of the things that seemed so very important when young not longer are. A peaceful contentment is a good thing to arrive at.

    That is what I would like for young people to see. Things are truly nice, but they are not all that is important.

    I'm down with the world peace option. I'd also like supermarkets to get rid of plastic bags forever. That would make me happy.

    Call me what you will, but I'd still rather own my own house than freeze my jingle-bells off in snow.

    No it doesn't.

    I was responding silentcollision's comment about Datura's wish.

    The truth is I'm dying to see snow myself... always wanted to. But right now, if I could have one practical wish, I want a house.

    Loads of money. I would pay my debts and then give the rest of away to people that needs it as I do.

    And yes, world peace. Fed up with the news and all the silly wars going around.

    I do also want another few things, but they would make me look like a cruel person instead of the good girl I am
