25 Days of Bookmas / Fun

25 Days of Bookmas – Day 19

Find a book that includes at least one of the following: a Gingerbread Man, a Christmas tree, Santa Claus, Christmas presents, or a Shooting Star

This took me a while to think of any books with any of these things in. So I thought really hard about it and came up with a favourite.  Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Thick streamers of holly and mistletoe were strung along the corridors, mysterious lights shone from inside every suit of armour and the Great Hall was filled with its usual twelve Christmas trees, glittering with golden stars. A powerful and delicious smell of cooking pervaded the corridors, and by Christmas Eve, it had grown so strong that even Scabbers poked his nose out of the shelter of Ron’s pocket to sniff hopefully at the air.

On Christmas morning, Harry was woken by Ron throwing his pillow at him.

“Oy! Present!”

Harry reached for hs glasses and put them on, squinting through the semi-darkness to the foot of his bed, where a small heap of parcels had appeared. Ron was already ripping the paper off his own presents.

“Another jumper from Mum… maroon again… see if you’ve got one.”

“Harry had. Mrs Weasley had sent him a scarlet jumper with the Gryffindor lion knitted on the front, also a dozen home-baked mince pies, some Christmas cake, and a box of nut brittle. As he moved these  aside, he saw a long, thin package lying underneath.

“What’s that?” Ron asked, looking over, a freshly unwrapped pair of maroon sock in his hand.

“Dunno…”

Harry ripped the parcel open and gasped as a magnificent gleaming broomstick rolled out onto his bedspread. Ron dropped his socks and jumped off his bed for a close look.

“I don’t believe it,” he said, hoarsely.

It was a Firebolt…

If you want to follow the rules of the tag you can do so here, please comment below a book that contains one of those things.

See you tomorrow.

Happy Reading.
