Students at Hogwarts have about two weeks worth of holidays during Christmas, where they can either go home or stay on at school. I'd sign up to stay at Hogwarts in a heartbeat!! Read on to know why Christmas at Hogwarts is just the best thing ever.
- The lesser the students, the more the fun!
Imagine having this giant castle all to yourself for two whole weeks! You could snoop around to your heart's desire, perhaps discover a secret tunnel or two and go through all the gorgeous books in the library. Feel bored? You could even sneak into Hogsmeade for a change. But hey- beware of Mrs. Norris!! You wouldn't want to spend your time in detention now, would you?
- The Great Hall
Twelve giant ornamented Christmas trees, festoons of holly and mistletoe, and warm, dry snow falling from the candle-filled Enchanted Ceiling- the Great Hall can be found in all its glory during Christmas time!
- Christmas decorations
The castle has been known to be decorated lavishly during Christmas with real, live fairies flying around the trees the school has been known to be decorated with everlasting icicles hanging from the banisters of the Grand Staircase, charmed suits of armor that sing carols and- get this- real live fairies which fly around the trees! Just imagine Hogwarts at Christmas! *sighs*
- Ghost carolers
Carols always bring about the Christmas cheer. What could be better than ghost carolers hanging around singing away merrily? Christmas at Hogwarts is one of the carols sung at Hogwarts and it goes something like:Move around the sparkling fireHave a merry Christmas DayFind a broomstick in your stockingSinging you the magic of this placeJoin the owls joyous flockingOn this merry Christmas Day
- The Christmas feast
What's Christmas without a scrumptious feast? On Christmas day there's a huge feast at Hogwarts for the remaining students and teachers. Mountains of roast turkey, chipolatas and potatoes are just some of the mouthwatering food in it. Oh, and Butterbeer- nothing can beat sipping a foaming mug of this non-alcoholic beverage. The tables are also strewn with plenty of Wizard Crackers that sound like gunshot when pulled and filled live mice, jokes, hats and other little gifts.
Well, so what do you think? Is Christmas at Hogwarts one of the best things ever or not? Gush on all you want in the comments section below!
