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.

OK so we all saw the newspaper shots that zipped by at the start of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them:

But someone clearly spent a lot of time coming up with the smaller headlines that barely anyone is ever going to see, and I would really like to read more about these:

This one is extremely hard to read but I’m pretty sure it says “Woman accused of marriage to dead no-maj” WHAT

“Accessorize your owl this winter”

Geez, poor little guy!

Is this a magical fuzzy navel?  Don’t know that I’d drink that.

Hermione would be appalled.

Can I get some of that?

Laughed, not sorry


Robert Goddard’s rocket made the wizarding news!  “Aurors suspect dark wizard involvement”

But most importantly there are articles that read like they’re straight out of a shitty online “news” site:

Like there are mommy-blogger-type witch mums who are sitting around discussing the latest bullshit “natural remedies” in the magical world too

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.
