Firstly I would help my family with whatever they wanted/needed...
then....
I would like

A house, not necessarily a big one but paid off so I can call it my own.

A recording studio

A house in Finland/New York/ Bahamas/Lapland/Australia/italy/Denmark/london

The money and resources to help children in need

Gordon Ramsay to cook for me and my family

Enough cash to buy clothes/make up without feeling guilty

I would buy my husband's workplace and kick out his bosses and give the employers a payrise

To be happy and content

University fees paid already for my daughter

To see some of the world's greatest musicians play in my back garden

and lots more ...................

another thing i would do with all my money, is pay for all of us forumers to fly out to new york, stay in the the most amazing hotel for 2 nights in december and have the biggest, wildest, christmas party ever! the day after the party we would go to a top restaurant for an amazing christmas dinner and then spend time ice skating at the rockerfella centre, taking in the christmas spirit!

(you could all bring family and friends too!)

Well I would arrange it so my hubby would not have to work and could spend more time with me and the family that would be an awesome Christmas present.

I would do my best to make my kids and their spouses lives more comfortable and of
course indulge my grandchildren.

Get my own car without having to think is it practical?

Help those less forturnate having a wonderful Christmas.

And of course I would move where I want to live. Not sure where that is right now but LOL, I suppose I could think of someplace if I had too.

AWESOME! I'm packing my bags!! Maybe we should fly to that Christmas hotel instead? There's a Christmas themed hotel in Tennessee (I think...or is it North Carolina?)..one of the forum members went and brought back pics...but yes...a Christmas party with JanaBanana, you, JayIsh, Storeytime, Speedy Elf, Jeff, Annette and the rest of the forum in attendance would be one for the ages!!

Wow, that's a great question. I've never thought about what I would want just about my daughters and the rest of my family.

My family would have everything they wanted plus some lol.

I guess for me...
A vacation would be nice. Maybe a Shopping Spree in NYC.
and
A nice new vehicle, doesn't matter what kind as long as it runs, has heat for the winter, and air for the summer.

Great idea ! I would fly all of us out to the North Pole, to Rovaniemi in Finland where we could all meet the REAL SANTA and visit the Christmas village.

That would be my biggest christmas wish, to spend a Christmas on the North Pole ! And if you'd al join me it'd be so much more fun !!
