Title: All I Want for Christmas is ???
Post by: imperatrice on September 15, 2009, 01:32:50 AM

just think Christmas is just around the corner.   so I've been thinking what Romanov books i would like this year.  i would like Romanovs love power and tragedy  ( I think everyone has it but me) the jewel album  of course.  I know there are others  but i can't think of them right now. i love  Romanov,imperial Russia--(st. petersburg. moscou, t.selo quai, neva, cosaques, troika) and the Kaiser's family  postcards!! 
 i would really like to have some to add to my collection.

You know what? That makes two of us. I don't have Romanovs: Love, Power and Tragedy and I too really badly want it for Christmas!!! Sadly, it'll probably be too expensive so I guess I'll have to hope for Peter Kurth's Tsar.

I'll make it three! I don't have that precious book, too! Aside from that, I hope OTMA and all my beloved royals will visit me in my dreams...

I want my crush to be my boyfriend, world peace, and a crystal-clear dream about the Romanovs, along with plane tickets to St. Petersburg.

Love and friendship

Really? Why do I have excatly same wishes...I wonder if they are to come true.... ;-) (Hehe). Ooh, yes, I want some other things too, like traveling, or something little, I love little presents, nothing huge. Ooh, visiting Russia would be excellent as well, I must prepare warm clothes for unmerciful winter.

One note -- Orthodox Christmas is to be on January 7th.

All I want for Christmas is to move to Salt Lake City, Utah and have enough money to live comfortably, not richly, just to have enough and not have to stretch pennies every day.

Exactly, my friend.  As for other wishes, to visit some people and to get some visits, to feel the magic of christmas once more.

Question...I spent most of my childhood in America, and though I am Orthodox, American Orthodox church members still do the whole gift-giving, Santa thing on December 25th, with religious services as well. Of course there are also special services on Jan. 7th, but, is this just an American Orthodox thing, or do others around the world also celebrate Dec. 25th? Thanks in advance.

For Christmas I'd like to spend the day with my family, and the one I love. Romanov trinkets are always nice also. ;)

We all want: world peace, nobody hunger, a better climate, but...
Ok, but if we stick to the question: What does everyone want for Christmas? Which books, goodies, presents?

I find writing is a great portal to the past.  I've made my dreams of becoming a servant to Empress Alexandra come true by writing a story about a fictional servant I based off of myself.

I think it depends on the dream.... If it's possible one.... the chance to come true is much bigger then if it's quite impossible... So you are lucky in what you are dreaming ;)

I agree, on the subject of dreams, i think sometimes its difficult to see them  unfolding, i was having a terrible time 4 years ago but if it hadnt been for that my dreams wouldnt be coming true now, I think its important to beleive and know what you want. Although its a strange sensation when your dreams come true when your not expecting it, it sort of catch's you off gaurd.

I'm broken hearted, and now one of my Christmas wishes is ruined!  My best friend stole my crush's heart,and he isn't talking to me much anymore!  At least I still have my romantic novel I based off of him.  So long, Alexei look-alike.  I guess I have to move on in life.

OMG, the craziest thing just happened yesterday!  The Alexei look-alike asked me out!  I was skipping and humming with a huge, unnatural smile, and my teachers were just staring at me.  I'm so happy! My first boyfriend!

then I'm glad that you get them :) I too hope that everyone got what one wanted...

though Christmas has just passed I already have wish for next year *shoking, huh?* . I soooooo would like to get Icon of Our Lady of the Sign or Icon of Our Lady of Kazan... I can't find any place in the internet where I could buy them in good prize(but I'm hopeless when it comes to searching anything) or shop in Gdańsk where I could buy any icon....
