Happy HEXmas!


5:29 am - HEX Staff




With HEXmas rapidly approaching, there is even more fun to be had at Hogwarts! As you wander the halls, you notice a multitude of items being scattered about. Are those special unopened chocolate frog boxes and eggnog, as well as a couple of tasty treats? Drink up the eggnog and open the boxes for a chance at other wonderful items, but be quick as these REs will stop falling on December 27th!

HEXmas Knitathon


1:51 am - HEX Staff


The Hogwarts Express slowly glided over the tracks, snow glistening through the windows. The winter holidays were just beginning, and Albus and Scorpius began to discuss their plans for the upcoming festivities.

"I wish you were staying with us over Christmas," Albus Severus said.

"Why's that?" Scorpius asked, looking up from the book he was reading.

"We all go over to the Burrow! Nanna Molly cooks a delicious holiday feast for us!"

"The elves at Malfoy Manor are also preparing a feast. They've got so many delectable treats - we should go there for sure!"

"Well the Burrow is nice and cosy. It's the perfect place to spend the holidays with family."

"But Malfoy Manor is so spacious you can bring your whole family and then some to stay. The more the merrier, right?"

"Yeah, well Nanna Molly always knits us new Christmas sweaters, and with the leftover wool, she spreads holiday cheer in a new way. This year she's making teddy bears for children in St Mungos! We all help, and if we make enough we get to keep one!"

"Grandma Narcissa could do that too! All ladies who grew up in the Black family learn how to knit and sew!"

From the doorway, James' figure abruptly stops. "You know what this sounds like to me? Knitathon!!"

HEXmas has arrived!


6:22 pm - HEX Staff



A gentle, but crisp breeze wafts around you as snow encircles your visage. Tiny snowflakes cling to your eyelashes as they grow heavier and heavier. As you look up, the wintery sky seems to stretch on forever and ever, as does the landscape. Moments before, you were in the warmth of your home staring at a beautifully crafted snow globe. Now it's as though you're experiencing what it must be like inside the snow globe. The scenery looks familiar and there's really no other explanation for such a magical phenomenon. As you phase back into reality, you realize it's finally time for HEXmas.

Santa Claus was already hard at work to make sure you can get some extra coin on the Daily Money to fulfill your shopping needs. And, because we all know there can never be too many gifts and, as such, never enough money to buy them, don't forget to try your luck at our HEXmas Lottery. Fortunately, all this talk about gifts means that you can now set up a tree on your profile, as well as start sending the gifts you've purchased for your friends for this holiday season!

If gardening is just your thing, you can now also head to Hagrid's Hut and plant our beloved poinsettias that are returning this year! If your thumb is not as green as you'd like, though, you can always get some tips and help on our Guide and FAQ threads, so be sure to check them out!

Join us on our snowglobe of a HEXmas Forum, and make sure you don't take your eyes off our Watch Thread and Guide Thread to be up to date on all the important things happening throughout the month!
