Finally, it's a Hogsmeade weekend! You've made plans with your friends on what stores to visit and what to stock up on - pranks, food, and most importantly, more chocolate. As you make your way to the Entrance Hall, you hear whispers around you of a plot by the staff to take over... the chocolate factory? Zonko's? Honeydukes? It doesn't make much sense why the staff would do something so childlike, but why not?
Come join the Ravenclaw Staff as we take a delicious journey in Hogwarts Hijacks Honeydukes - tasty treats, games, and adventures await!

New Issue of The Quibbler!Posted by Zoe on January 10, 2019 - 10:40 pm
The start of a new year always leaves many of us wanting to get more on track with our lives. To do this, some people break out a never-ending supply of sticky notes that become stuck to everything ... until they're not. Others tend to default to using a calendar to track anything and everything, from when they watered the plants (down to the second!) to when their next dentist appointment is. No matter what sort of person you are, this month's issue of The Quibbler is definitely relatable. The writers fall in all areas of this spectrum and, oh, did they have strong feelings about the topic this month!
No matter what type of person you are, be sure you schedule in some time to read the January issue of The Quibbler!
If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or send an owl to Zoe.
