World peace, puppies, trip to the North Pole: what do our readers want for Christmas?

World peace, puppies, trip to the North Pole: what do our readers want for Christmas?

We asked our readers what’s at the top of their Christmas wish list. Here are some of our favourite answers

Express delivery

I have always imagined travelling to the North Pole ever since I watched The Polar Express! It would be a blast to meet kids from all over the world – and of course, Santa Claus. I think I’d cry happy tears when I received my present.

Jenny Kwan, HKU

Me time

Honestly, what I’d most this year is some peace and quiet. I would love to spend some quality time by myself, with no one bugging me about revision, homework or tutorial classes. I would also love to skip all those holiday parties and events. Why suffer through awkward social situations when you could have movie marathons at home, snuggled up on the couch with hot chocolate? I won’t have to get anyone gifts either!

Season of love

At the top of my Christmas wish list is romance! I want to meet a handsome boy who’ll sweep me off my feet this Christmas.

Tweety Chan Chui-ying, 13, Tak Nga Secondary School

Out of this world

A ticket to space is definitely at the top of my wish list! Imagine being able to see Earth from afar and soaring through the galaxy. I would travel to my favourite planet, Neptune, and go exploring. Who knows? I might even make friends with aliens!

Wong Man-ying, 13, St. Paul’s Co-educational College

A furry friend

My wish is for a puppy. They’re so cute and soft and make you feel warm and cosy. If I had a puppy to play with, I wouldn’t be lonely at Christmas.

Suki Kwok, 16, Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School

Make the grade

What I want most is to pass my upcoming exam. I’ve been studying hard every day and I’m really hoping for a good result. If my wish came true, I could simply relax and enjoy the holidays.

Hannah Ho, 12, Maryknoll Fathers’ School

Eternal Christmas

My wish is for every day to be Christmas! Then I could receive a new gift every day.

Michael Kwok Pui-hin, 16, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

No more 2-for-1

My wish is actually pretty simple. I just want my Christmas present to be not double up as my birthday present. Just because my birthday is two days away from Christmas does NOT mean that people can cheat and give me only one present!

Charlotte Choi, 12, Shatin College

Darth Vader, Dobby and other fictional characters that deserve another chance at life

Peace on Earth

I wish the world could be filled with peace and love, with no more wars or suffering. Isn’t that what this season is all about?

Gisele Law, 14, Tak Nga Secondary School

Oh, Christmas tree

A Christmas tree is at the top of my wish list. My family doesn’t have one at home, but I always admire the trees in shopping malls and I wish I decorate my own. They’re so beautiful and just make everyone happy.

Gigi Chan, 17, Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School
