CoS Holiday Calendar

December is a month in which many of us have a holiday to celebrate. For a lot of Dutch children and adults Saint Nicolas' evening (December 5th) is the most important day in the year after their birthday. For Muslims December 8th means the start of Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice). The 21st marks the start of Hanukkah and the Winter/Summer Solstice. Then on December 25 it's Christmas. In short there is a lot to celebrate.

It's an old tradition to use an Advent Calendar to count and celebrate the days of Advent until Christmas arrives. We have chosen to make a Harry Potter themed calendar and have asked Hogsmeade members and the members of the Ministry of Magic elections teams to take care of the windows. Each day until Christmas morning on the 25th a window will open (you will have to click on the picture). Behind the windows you will find something to entertain you. It can be a holiday wish, a story, a funny video or anything at all.

All entries are hosted on Livejournal, so in case you have a LJ, you are welcome to join/friend the community and you will receive the entries each day on your friends page

Have a festive December!

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar

Beautiful story, Denise and Klio! I expected no less from the two of you, and I'm glad we decided not to go with writing a story! You're too tough competition.

Thank you also for agreeing to go first and open the festivities in this thread.

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar

Let me make this clear - the story and original idea (I LOVE the idea!!!) is all Den_Muggle's - she is an amazing writer!

I just threw in a few illustrations and she insisted in putting my name on the front door. But really - it's her work.

Though I am happy to hear that some of you found the pictures amusing.

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar

Thanks! I'm glad everyone is enjoying it. Going first is always a bit intimidating and I knew we'd have to do well.

Some of you who were in or followed the Tri-Wizard Tournament may think that sounds a bit familiar. I used the argument (though not the story) to argue that Filch was the person who learned to do magic late in life. That was what won me the Trelawney Award from that competition. I thought the full version (which I've been wanting an excuse to write for some time) would work great here. Fortunately for me, Klio graciously agreed to do the illustrations, adding immensely to the story.

Can't wait for tomorrow's entry.

Thanks, Hes, for letting us all enjoy this festive treat!

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar

That was great! It brought a big smile to my face

In the slip of a bolt, there's a tiny revolt
the seeds of a war in the creak of a floorboard
a storm can begin, with the flap of a wing
the tiniest mite packs the mightiest sting.

Denise is an amazing writer, and you are an amazing illustrator, Klio. That really made the entry complete. And it must have been quite a feat finding a picture of Filch smiling and looking happy!! Or was it clever manipulation? If it was, it's awesone!

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar

What a brilliant start Den and Klio!

I love the story- funny yet thoughtful

The pics are my favs too- especially the "Boo" pic

"At the end of the first round, I will award three points to Mr. Kaine for an excellent nonspecific condemnation, plus one bonus point for blaming the previous government and another for successfully mutating the question to promote the party line. Mr. van de Poste gets a point for a firm rebuttal, but only two points for his condemnation, as he tried to inject an impartial and intelligent observation"
