Happy Christmas 

It was true that Harry wasn’t going back to Privet Drive for Christmas. Professor McGonagall had come around the week before, making a list of students who would be staying for the holidays, and Harry had signed up at once. He didn’t feel sorry for himself at all; this would probably be the best Christmas he’d ever had.

This is everyone at Bloomsbury right now: 

I never really think about Harry as a baby with the Dursleys.

I think about him as he grows older wanting attention but not getting it while they give the minimum they can. As he grows older again not caring too much about what they do or think just wanting the basics to get through. It must have been horrible to have to go through that and having no friends. All of that is heart breaking enough but thinking about Harry when he first gets there has got to me.

I’m sure the Dursleys would ignore Harry as much as possible but what does that mean? Is it real abuse of leaving dirty nappies and feeding rarely? They clearly see him as a responsibility they do not want nor care for despite everything Harry has already been through they are a lot more worried about themselves. Forcing themselves to do the minimum with Harry while spoiling Dudley. Playing with Dudley while Harry lies in his crib.  

I mean as he gets slightly older I can’t imagine Petunia and Vernon encouraging him to walk or talk. It makes me wonder how he did develop in to the person he became as school can only go so far but support needs to start at home and he literally had none.
