Disney! Honestly, I love spending Christmas there.

Outside of that, I like the idea of being in a log cabin with a roaring fire somewhere, with cold snow capped mountains outside.... so maybe Switzerland?

For me, it'd be either Hawaii or somewhere in the Rocky Mountains (with lots of snow!)

If this is a dream, I'd like to go to a Disney park with very low crowds! Hah! Only in my dreams. If I could spend a real Christmas anywhere, I think I'd choose Copenhagen. I spent Christmas there in 1968 and it was so magical and beautiful.

I love your idea of Disney without the crowds - that would be good!

Copenhagen? I'd love to go there one day. I'll have to bend your ear when we see you.

For me, Christmas has to be at home. But before Christmas Eve and the day itself, or after, I'd say Paris (and there's always the side trip to Disney there too!). Vienna and NYC are running right behind...

Somewhere in the Southern hemisphere so it'd be summer. South Africa would be preferable.

We really want to go to Hilton Head for Christmas one year. And if I could go shopping in NYC on the way that would just be perfect.

Hubby would like to stay put where we are since this is our first Christmas here.
For me, I would like to leave on Boxing Day for a warmer Climate. If this were a dream, I would pick Castaway Cay for a few days, with half the crowds.
