Christmas Calamity Part 2
Christmas Calamity Part 2

Brilliant Event

INTRO

CONSTANCE

I have so many fond memories of Christmas. The puddings, the baubles, the trees, the fairy lights... I remember at Hogwarts, I heard so much about the Yule Ball. It sounded like the most magical night ever.


I'll be honest with you, I wouldn't be sad if we didn't return all these Foundables from this Christmas-themed surge. They're so festive!


HARRY

No. No, no no. These Foundables need to be returned just as urgently as any of the other things taken by the Calamity. You know that, Constance.


CONSTANCE

You're right, Harry. We should stay focused, {NAME}.


BRILLIANT PARVATI AND HARRY

CONSTANCE

Looking pretty debonair, Harry!


HARRY

If I never have to wear dress robes again, it will be too soon...


BRILLIANT ANGELINA AND FRED

CONSTANCE

After all the stories I've heard of Fred and George Weasleys' antics, I'm surprised that they behaved themselves at the Yule Ball. Seems almost like a missed opportunity for mischief!


HUFFLEPUFF SILVER GARGOYLE

CONSTANCE

I remember when I was ten years old and my grandmother came over for Christmas. She was a Hufflepuff and she had a badger brooch that I pilfered to play with. I spent the rest of Christmas locked in the attic. Ha!


HARRY

Uh, that sounds horrible, Constance.


CONSTANCE

What? We kept all our books in the attic. There was no place I'd rather be.


SNOWY CHRISTMAS TREE

CONSTANCE


We were never able to have a tree at my house. Mum said she was “allergic” to decorating... but I loved looking in our neighbours' windows and seeing their trees, all bright and shiny.


CHILLED PUMPKIN JUICE

CONSTANCE

Until the Ministry sent her a notice about permits and licensing, my mum used to make and sell batches of “special” pumpkin juice for grown-ups only. It was delicious!


HAUGHTY DRACO

CONSTANCE

Oooh, the Yule Ball! I remember looking at photographs of it when I was at Hogwarts and wishing they'd reinstate the Triwizard Tournament just so we could have one of our own.


CHRISTMAS CRACKER

CONSTANCE

I always thought those crackers looked like loads of fun when my mum and sister pulled them together! That pop always made me squeal with delight.


END

CONSTANCE

Well, it looks like the Calamity has returned to normal. And just in time for the holiday to start!


HARRY

Constance... what are your plans for the holiday?


CONSTANCE

I heard that my family will be having Christmas at my sister's new house this year, but they haven't sent me any details... or her address...


HARRY

Ah... well, if that doesn't work out, would you like to have Christmas dinner with us?


CONSTANCE

Christmas with the Potters? That would be lovely! Thanks, Harry!
