Now that the holiday season has rolled in, it's time to deck the halls, belt out the carols, and hit the holiday shopping. And what makes a better present than a Harry Potter-themed gift? After all, nobody does Christmas like Hogwarts.

Think, for a moment, on Professor Flitwick decorating the castle for the holiday and teaching the suits of armor to sing Christmas carols. Then there's Dobby decorating the Room of Requirement with mistletoe and baubles bearing Harry's face. Or Sirius throwing himself into bringing some holiday cheer to Grimmauld Place. Plus, remember all the festivities (and drama!) of the Yule Ball? And of course, there's Harry's first Christmas, when he came to the Gryffindor common room to realize that for the first time in his life he had been given real presents. Just thinking of it makes my heart melt.

The Christmas scenes in Harry Potter are great examples of what the holidays are about. We see the characters come together in marvelous ways, spreading cheer to each other in even the most dreary and perilous of circumstances.
