It’s getting to be that time of the year again! Godric’s Hallow (1) of all shapes and sizes are busier than ever, flitting everywhere, delivering precious goodies around. It is now the Christmas Eve(2). As Snape(3) went out to pick up the mail, he noticed a funky(4) fun(5) Godric’s Hallow(1) soar by. It circled around her furry(6) porridge(7) once, twice... then finally landed at hisfeet. Tied securely to his feet are a stack of Christmas cards. “Wow!(8),” muttered Snape(3), “Not again! What’s the big deal with Christmas?’
Snape(3) tossed the stack of cards onto the kitchen counter. Ignoring the pile as he stalked over to his eggnog(9). Hopping on frumpily(10), he kicked off from the ground. Saying, “Ugh, yuck!”(11) as the snow fell around her, he glared at the bit of snow stick on the both sides of his lapels, then grumbled again, “Merlin’s pants!(12) Christmas!” Yellow(13) and red(14) flashing light bulbs hung everywhere. The sound of Jungle Bell Rock(15) blasted from a nearby shop. Wanting to get out of the frosty (16) atmosphere, he flitted about Diagon Alley from shop to shop, till all his groceries were done.
“Hey Snape(3)!” a deep voice called.
Snape(3) paused, then turned to the direction of the voice with a frown. It was Moaning Myrtle(17).
“I have been instructed to give you this,” said Moaning Myrtle(17) eagerly(18), handing the envelope over.
Unashamedly(19) turning over the envelope, Snape slid the edge of the packet apart, revealing a shiny (20) glitter (21) and pink(22) sparkled card the size of a large basketful. Turning the words over, he read, “Have a merry Christmas! You are hereby cordially invited to the 2012 Ministry Yule Ball!” printed neatly in orange(23) shapely(24) fonts.
“Oh golly! (25) Christmas!”
