    "wish"



    "For many people, Christmas is a time of sorrow. They don't have the extra money to buy presents for their children, family, and friends. Many are saddened at Christmastime when they think of their loved ones who will not be able to come home for various reasons. Turkey dinners may be only a wish and not a reality for some."

    I think that the identical synonym to the word "wish" in the above context is dream, isnít it?

    You could use "dream" there.
