As you're rushing across the Entrance Hall toward the candy bowl you spotted, you run directly into Hagrid, who's carrying a box of decorations.

Please join the Ravenclaw staff in Hagrid's Halloween Hijinks - and visit some of your favorite Hogwarts creatures, too!

Caretaker Concoctions - OctoberPosted by Ry240 on October 15, 2018 - 11:40 am
The Ghosts are just another normal fixture at Hogwarts. No one thinks much of them. However, some of the ghosts love to be in the spotlight in October, especially a certain poltergeist. Having fun with each other out of sight of the pesky eyes of students is something they look forward to. And others? Well, they simply like to go about their daily 'life'. Why not see what the ghosts are up to, maybe by the end even you'll say All My Friends Are Ghosts!
