A Definitive Ranking Of Harry Potter's Christmases

All I want for Christmas is my Hogwarts Letter...

Posted on

7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

This is ranked as the worst Christmas, seeing as Ron had ditched Harry and Hermione -- who didn't even realize it was Christmas Eve since they'd been on the run!

They also visited Harry's parents' graves in Godric's Hollow, then were attacked by Voldemort's snake, Nagini. Not a great time....

6. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Another Christmas ruined by Nagini -- this one begins with Mr. Weasley getting attacked and Harry seeing it through the snake's eyes. Luckily, Mr. Weasley survived and everyone was able to celebrate together.

Though it was also the last Christmas Harry had with Sirius.... *uncontrollable crying*

5. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry and Ron spent Christmas at the Burrow, while Hermione went to spend tome with her family since she was upset with Ron and his obnoxious relationship with Lavender Brown. So sad...

Gross.

4. Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry received a Firebolt broomstick mysteriously in the mail. Despite his and Ron's excitement, Hermione turned it into Prof. McGonagall in case it was cursed. It was a bit of a rough time...

Though they were able to spend some festive time in Hogsmeade and they were of course at Hogwarts!

3. Chamber of Secrets

Harry, Ron, and Hermione all stayed at Hogwarts for Christmas their second year -- during which they finished brewing a batch of Polyjuice Potion in order to infiltrate the Slytherin common room and find out if Malfoy was the Heir of Slytherin.

Unfortunately, Hermione turned into a cat. Oops...

But overall, a successful mission and the gang was all together at Hogwarts.

2. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

In their fourth year, Christmas was overshadowed by the Yule Ball, a dance to celebrate the Triwizard Tournament that allowed the different schools to intermingle.

The Great Hall was decked out in winter decor...

And everyone danced and had a marvelous time!

That is, except Harry and Ron, who were moping because they didn't get the dates they wanted... Boo-hoo.

And Ron ended up ruining Hermione's evening -- but overall, a very glamorous, romantic holiday season!

1. Sorcerer's Stone

Harry's first Christmas at Hogwarts is BY FAR, the best one...

It was the first time he'd ever received gifts!

Including a homemade Weasley sweater -- and his late father's Invisibility Cloak...

Which he used to sneak into the Restricted Section of the Library and inadvertently found the Mirror of Erised...

And was kind of able to spend time with his dead parents. *AW*

Let's not forget how wondrous any Christmas at Hogwarts would be!

OOOOO!

AHHHHH!

Harry agrees.

The End.
