209. Minerva McGonagall had a huge sweet tooth, and more often than not you would find her eating sweets or cakes. In her office, her drawers were full of sweets and her bin was full with wrappers. She almost always offered visitors something sweet to nibble on, and if you weren’t offered you knew you were in trouble. For Minerva, sweets was something she associated with home and safety. She would remember being a little girl and eating chewy toffee, big lollies and soft chocolate, and get this warm and fuzzy feeling. By giving other people sweets, she hoped she could share some happiness in troubled times.
