A Governess for Leo Lupin.
The most pitied woman in all of Britain. Possibly all the world. He's awful.
"I'll bleed wherever I damn well please!" She shouted, scowling at him. As if to prove it, she uncovered her nose and shook her head back and forth like a dog attempting to dry its fur of water. Little droplets of blood rained on the sidewalk all willy-nilly. Billie Farrow in A Good Dusting

What: The Destiny Christmas Ball
Who: Hosted by the Destiny Hotel of Aphrodite Soiree fame, for the worthy* of society.
Where: Destiny Hotel, London
Why: Christmas?
When: December 20th, Evening
* Upper class with rep 5+, middle with rep 7+. All 17+ in age, all fully human. Invite only, but invitations have been sent very liberally.

Come experience a winter wonderland as we dance our way into the holidays. Where others might have a dance floor, the hotel has installed a dance pond ringed with snow-capped evergreens, where guests may dance their way through the evening on skates (practice in advance is highly recommended!). Off the floor, each table is topped by its own miniature bonfire, as the climate charms might make the room a bit frosty. Hot beverages will be served throughout the evening.

Décor includes living ice sculptures of forest creatures, a floor enchanted to look like a snowy valley, and occasional bunches of mistletoe floating throughout the room. At midnight, none other than Father Christmas himself will appear to crown the most lovely young lady our Christmas Queen.

What: The Wedding of @Ari Fisk & @"Dionisia Tweedy".
Who: Are you a Fisk? Are you a cousin, second cousin, aunt, uncle of a Fisk? Are you close friends with Ari? Dionisia? Are you some distant relative or overbearing acquaintance who raise hell if you weren't invited? You're probably invited!
Where: Ottery St. Catchpole
Why: Ari and Dionisia are getting married!
When: December 27th, 1888
They're so in love—at least that's what you're supposed (or pretend) to think! The two might have only announced their engagement in late November, but you can't make true love wait. It will be a modest ceremony with plenty of booze, with both bride and groom are on the scene to make sure you don't die of alcohol poisoning.

What: Annual Pettigrew Quidditch Christmas Party
Who: Thom Pettigrew to host; friends of Thom/Hannah, Quidditch players/industry professionals (with the exception of Arthur/Desdemona Pettigrew and anyone with a rep below 5) and their +1s, Hogwarts Quidditch players years 5-7 with their chaperones.
Where: Pettigrew Estate, Lancashire.
Why: Ostensibly to celebrate the holidays but also to recruit Puddlemere players and wow the Hogwarts students into hopefully pursuing a life of Quidditch post graduation.
When: 19 December
A grand ball, complete with a giant Christmas tree decorated with golden snitches and Quidditch-themed refreshments. There will also be door prizes raffled off during the course of the night, mostly consisting of Quidditch gear made by Thom's company (Quality Quaffle & Snitch). The large patio attached to the ballroom will also be available, and has been enchanted both to have gently falling snow regardless of the real weather and to remain a brisk but not freezing temperature throughout the night.

Hogwarts players will have group transport arranged from the gates of the school; their chaperones should meet them there. They will be dropped off at the night's conclusion for their last day of classes unless their parents made other arrangements.

What: Magical Gingerbread Competition
Who: Kid-friendly, WC-friendly holiday festivities sponsored by Some Ladies' Charity that Ophelia's become involved in.
Where: Padmore Park
Why: Holidays + Charity
When: 14 December, afternoon
Dozens of gingerbread men have been donated by a London bakery, along with various structural pieces required to build gingerbread houses. Families can register for the gingerbread race, which entails letting the children decorate a gingerbread man and then having the adults charm it to run a short obstacle course. The families can eat the gingerbread man after it completes the race, and the top three winners will receive a prize in the form of free baked goods at some future date from the London bakery. Errant gingerbread men who run off may be spotted in Padmore Park for weeks to come.

The gingerbread houses can be constructed either manually or magically, and they will be judged by folks from the charity for height, likenesses to real buildings, best use of magic, and general architectural splendor. Winners will also receive bakery-related prizes in additional to being able to dismantle and eat their houses.

Poor children can also just come decorate gingerbread men to eat if they have no adults to charm them into the race.
