CHRISTMAS AT HOGWARTS
“Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban.
The few owls that managed to battle their way through the stormy sky to deliver post had to be nursed back to health by Hagrid before they could fly off again. No one could wait for the holidays to start. While the Gryffindor common room and the Great Hall had roaring fires, the draughty corridors had become icy and a bitter wind rattled the windows in the classrooms.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
I don’t get why Order of the Phoenix is one of the least popular book/movie. I love how it’s all about them taking a stand when the people they should be able to rely on like their teachers and government fail to support them. Plus, even if there isn’t huge battles and creatures like in some of the other books, just reading about their school life and exam season is so fun and interesting to me, you get some of the most information about daily Hogwarts life in it than in other books.
