Yhden Enkelin Unelma ("One Angel's Dream") is a Christmas single by Finnish singer Tarja Turunen, released as Turunen's first solo project ever, when she was still part of the symphonic metal band Nightwish, back in December 2004; it was also released as an Extended Play in limited edition.

Right after the release it debuted at number 2, and ended 2004 after more three weeks at number 1;[1] it started 2005 as number 4, and reached number 1 again in December 2005, after spending 10 weeks on the official Finnish charts.[2] The single has reached Gold Disc status in Finland with more than 7 thousand copies sold.[3]

The single is sung entirely in the Finnish language, and Turunen promoted it with a mini tour holding concerts in Finland, Germany, Spain and Romania, in late 2005.[4]
