For some people, all they want for the holidays is their two font teeth. But if you're little Ralphie Parker from A Christmas Story, all you want in this whole entire world is a Red Ryder BB gun.

We're curious.  
What's one thing YOU want this holiday season? 

Share with us by posting in the comments section below, and we'll enter you in a drawing to win two free tickets to A Christmas Story! Official contest rules listed below.  

UPDATED | Congratulations to our winner, Sunee MacRae! Thank you all for participating and sharing your holidays wishes—we hope they come true!

To help get the ball rolling, we asked a couple FAC interns to share what one thing they most want for the holidays.

Super generous Kelly (Museum Intern) wants someone to donate to IndyGive!
"I think IndyGive is one of the most awesome ways to donate to the community non-profits in Colorado Springs. The more you donate, the more awesome prizes and certificates you get to use in other local stores.  The rewards you get after you've donated include some free socks from Old Town Bike Shop, a POUND of coffee from Colorado Coffee Merchants, a Saturday matinee performance of a FAC Theatre Production, or even a NEW CAR! Just donate for me, and we can share the rewards, k?" -Kelly


Annika serenades some cats.

Annika (Social Media Intern) wants a new classical guitar!

"I've been playing classical guitar for a little while now, with a guitar on loan from my dad. I'd really love to get my own guitar this year, so that I can return the borrowed one and feel like a more legitimate musician. Maybe I should also get one of those hands-free harmonica holders so I can go full Bob Dylan." -Annika

I wish for a Daisy Model 25 BB gun. Much more power and better accuracy than the Red Ryder.

Sunee MacRae said...

A Red Ryder BB Gun! Haha, while that is cool, not really what I want for the holidays. Actually, what I want for the holidays is right here! I am a major fan of the Arts, both performing and craft.

Though I am not given the opportunity to see these plays if at all. So I figure I would take a chance here and say my ultimate holiday wish would be to attend one of Colorado Spring's Fine Arts Center's plays. This is truly a classic I wish not to miss out on.

I would love to see ten people or families become new members to the CS Fine Art Center in the month of December. Not only do they get to truly be a part of one of the finest arts institutions in the Pikes Peak region; but they get discounts on performances, exhibitions and classes! And there are all kinds of other member benefits, too many to name here. Yep, I'd simply be happy with more members to our FAC family this holiday season.

A pair of red cowboy boots. (Yeah, I know. Totally material. Maybe we could throw some world peace in too?)

I have two new grandsons born this year and they will both be here for Christmas. I would love to have a new camera - just a small one, nothing fancy - to take pictures while of them and the rest of my loved ones over the holidays.

I would like for the remaining $7000 that is needed to activate my husband's memorial scholarship to be funded by the end of this year.

Rachel Brannen said...

I would like to spend time with a bunch of my girl friends who live all around the United States. Although we are far apart in distance, they are in my thoughts often!

Becky Brown said...

If I am being totally selfish, I would love a trip to Disneyworld with my husband. I love Disney and have never been to Florida!

The best Christmas story, other than the real one in Bethlehem.

I already own a leg lamp that is lit in my window every night.... but it's a mini version, only 22" tall. I wish I would get the full size leg lamp this Christmas!

I would like to go to see the Christmas Story House and museum in Cleveland, OH. http://www.achristmasstoryhouse.com/
I absolutely love the movie, A Christmas Story. I would love to win a pair of tickets to see your stage production of it. I have a leg lamp, CS ornaments and the book upon which this is based. It is my all time favorite Christmas movie and 'story.'

How fun it would be to actually win something!

For Christmas, I want that ONE present under the tree all beautifully wrapped with my name on the tag. The present that when I carefully unwrap it will reveal a glow shining down upon it, the present that will evoke a hallelujah choir, the present that will inspire the heavens to part. This will be the present that shouts “I love you,” out loud. The present that I know could only come from the heart: a handmade gift from my daughters. -Debby VanOrden 633-4610, carlanddebby@msn.com

My father had his 80th birthday in September, and has been a Type I diabetic for 60 years, so we are lucky to still have him with us. For Christmas, for him, I would love to see my brother be able to travel from California with the 2 newest grandchildren, ages 1 and 3, and for us to have a special day together with my 16 and 22 year olds, for my father's sake. And instead of gifts, everyone can make donations to the American Diabetes Association. from, caninilaura@gmail.com

I am a college student at CSU, and between finals, and my track team training and job interviews, I just hope I can survive the stress of this and make it home for a bit during the holidays! I would love to be able to see this event with my mom during the holidays. Laurisa 719-964-2164

My son is moving to Seattle today. I wish we could fly him home for Christmas.

I was injured in a serious car accident this year, so between that and ongoing hurtful actions by my in-laws (the latter probably worse than the accident), this has been a hard year for my husband and I. We are financially strapped until insurance money from the accident comes through, and this would make for a nice date night. My Christmas wish is a break from the external things that are stressing our marriage.

I wish for The White House and Congress to reach a deal and avert a "fiscal cliff."

Fine Arts Center said...

We randomly chose a winner, and that winner is Sunee MacRae! You've won two tickets to A CHRISTMAS STORY.

Thank you all for participating and sharing your holiday wishes! We wish we could grant them all, and hope they they do (all of them) come true. :)

I have two wishes. I wish that the United States Government will see a "Miracle" this Christmas and will find a way to balance the budget...I also wish a "Miracle" for this nation's people will come together as one heart and find the one thing that is missing in their lives that will make them whole! Hey, I can wish can't I??
