"Meanwhile, in the rest of the castle, the usual magnificent Christmas decorations had been put up...thick streamers of holly and mistletoe were strung along the corridors, mysterious lights shone from inside every suit of armour and the Great Hall was filled with its usual twelve Christmas trees, glittering with golden stars. A powerful and delicious smell of cooking pervaded the corridors..."

Christmas at Hogwarts - Commentary

Christmas for the Weasleys is usually a time of fun, laughter and celebration so we wanted our Christmas song to reflect that. J K Rowling describes Christmas at Hogwarts so well that we couldn't resist putting in a few of her wonderful and inventive details such as the singing suit of armour, the garlands of mistletoe, the fairies and the food!

The musical style of this song can only be described as 'Christmas style'! We listened to some festive favourites for inspiration and decided to make the song slow at the beginning and end, and lively and bouncy in the middle. We added some echoes and some tinkling bells to complete the effect.

One of the verses deals with the snowball fight that the Weasleys have during Ginny's third year, just before the Yule Ball. We really wanted to write about this because we just can't think of a more fun way to spend Christmas day than having a snowball fight with the Weasleys, exploring the Hogwarts grounds, then all heading inside for the feast!

We hope that your Christmas will be just as fun and magical!

 

Christmas at Hogwarts - Lyrics

For the perfect Christmas, where would you be?
Would you choose to spend Christmas with me?
In a magical place all covered in snow
Are you coming, will you go?
To a mystical castle, set apart
The wonders you see there will gladden your heart
For a Christmas adventure come with me...
To Hogwarts School, to Hogwarts School
Of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Ahhhh, its Christmas at Hogwarts, Ahhhh
The Great Hall is looking festive tonight
Twelve trees sparkling with real fairy light
The mistletoe garlands look a little faded
I do hope nargles haven't invaded
The house ghosts are dressed in fine apparel
A suit of armour sang a Christmas carol
Just look at the fat lady's fancy dress
I wonder who she's trying to impress
Yeah! It's Christmas, ahhhh
It's Christmas at Hogwarts, ahhhh
No you can't beat Christmas at Hogwarts
One year we had a great big snowball fight
We played outside in the fading light
Snow was thick on the castle grounds
Fred and George started messing around
They made a snowball and sent it straight at me
I threw it back but it missed and hit Harry
He didn't seem to mind one little bit
I think he secretly quite enjoyed it
Yeah! It's Christmas, ahhhh
It's Christmas at Hogwarts, ahhhh
No you can't beat Christmas at Hogwarts
I'm having such fun this Christmas day
I wish it could last for ever
And I know just why I'm feeling this way
'Cos the company couldn't be better
It's Christmas, ahhhh
It's Christmas at Hogwarts, ahhhh
No you can't beat Christmas at Hogwarts
The feast is prepared by the house elves
Hagrid drank two crates of eggnog by himself
A hundred turkeys and fat chipolatas
A hundred flaming Christmas puddings for afters
We spent the day enjoying our Christmas gifts
And all sang a round of 'God Rest Ye Merry Hippogriffs'
Everyone's cheerful, relaxed and merry
I just love spending Christmas with Harry
Yeah! It's Christmas, ahhhh
It's Christmas at Hogwarts, ahhhh
No you can't beat Christmas at Hogwarts, ahhhh
It's Christmas at Hogwarts, ahhhh
No you can't beat Christmas at Hogwarts
(Merry Christmas Harry)
