Get into the Christmas spirit with Harry Potter
Is there anything at Hogwarts more enchanted than Christmas? Don't you just want to spend Christmas morning roaming the Harry Potter Shop? Potter heads, you're not alone, so don't worry!
Despite the fact that most of the Harry Potter movies spend time depicting Christmas at Hogwarts, the holiday is still very important to the series and Harry's stay at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Because of all that has transpired this year, we decided to talk about our favourite Harry Potter Christmas moments in case you need some assistance getting into the holiday spirit. These are the best Christmas scenes:
Hedwig In The Snow
One of the first images we have of Christmas at Hogwarts is without a doubt Harry trudging through the snow with Hedwig and the snowy owl soaring above the castle grounds, even if it only occurs briefly in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Seeing the beautiful owl Hedwig fly over actual snow is one of the series' most magnificent scenes. As spectacular as everything else in the Harry Potter universe is the stunning whiteness of the snow covering the castle's spires and towers.
Even if it doesn't constitute a substantial scene or even a full sequence in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the stunning image of Hedwig flying above the Hogwarts clock tower gives the book a holiday feel.
Christmas Decorations in the Great Hall
It's fair to say that the Christmas decorations in the Great Hall are more than adequate to arouse our anticipation for a merry Christmas, even though it may not be a specific scene in a certain film. We envisage a Christmas in the Great Hall, with enormous trees, exquisite decorations, and more food than we can reasonably eat.
Some of the most stunning shots in the Harry potter books can be found in Hogwarts Great Hall, but this specific scene is among the most stunning in all eight of the movies. It feels warm, comfortable, and familiar.
The movie gives viewers an incredible picture of the Great Hall decorated for Christmas before Harry, Ron, and Hermione apply Polyjuice Potion to disguise themselves. One of the most Christmassy scenes the franchise has to offer, with snow falling gracefully from the roof and decorations covering the entire space.
CHRISTMAS AT 12 GRIMMAULD PLACE
There is nothing better than celebrating Christmas with your loved ones, and while Harry was never able to celebrate the holiday with his parents, the Christmas he spent at 12 Grimmauld Place with the Weasley family and Sirius Black was quite similar.
Family is the main focus of Christmas, and Harry doesn't have any. Early on, the loving Weasleys take him in, and his yearly Christmas visit with them becomes a tradition. In The Order Of The Phoenix, Hermione even travels with them.
Harry, Ron, and Hermione return to 12 Grimmauld Place shortly after Arthur Weasley's horrifying attack to celebrate Christmas with the Weasley family and Sirius Black. Because it demonstrates that there are always brief intervals of happiness and even joy, this scene stands out as one of the most enduring Christmas scenes.
Harry’s First Christmas At Hogwarts
Even though it's safe to presume that the Dursleys had never had a particularly good Christmas, Harry's first holiday season at Hogwarts was undoubtedly memorable. He knows that Christmas at Hogwarts will be magical no matter what, despite Malfoy's mocking him for staying at school throughout the holiday time. The inclusion of the Weasley family, though, makes it much more precious for Harry.
Mrs Weasley accepts Harry into the family even though she has only ever met the youngster once. Ron also acknowledges that he informed her that Harry wasn't expecting any gifts. What, exactly, are these friendship goals?
The Weasley brothers just accept this child as one of their own, despite the fact that he has already been the subject of many rumours.
And of course, Christmas wouldn't be complete without a colossal, delectable feast that Harry gets to partake in with the Weasley boys.
Harry's first Christmas at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is our go-to scene when we're trying to get into the holiday spirit because there is nothing quite like the excitement and wonder of Christmas, especially when you're a youngster.
