It would be easy to assume that Evangeline came to the Lady Morgana only to pick fights. That wasn't true at all. They also had very good biscuits.

UCAB | REP 7 | Family Fun

What: Christmas Festivities
Who: Upper and Upper Middle Class event for invited friends (most UC and UpperMC people). Hogwarts staffers of any rank are invited
The day time event is mostly intended for those with children, but people can just drop by if they want
The evening event is for all adults.
Cost: N/A
Why: Self explanatory.
When: 20th December

The home has been turned into a winter/christmas wonderland internally - think THIS BUT VICTORIAN. There is indoor snow, but the temperature is comfortable
During the day there will be games, indoor sledding, the ballroom is a magical ice rink, a punch and judy show, clowns and performers, enchanted snowmen, live reindeer etc, whatever festive magic you can think of has been created!

Tables spread with goodies and christmas treats - hot chestnuts, candy canes, cakes, hot hand pies, with mulled drinks and hot chocolate.

Children will also be able to visit Santa - which is Meserimus in full Santa gear and receive a gift according to their likes and tastes. Visits from 'joking' adults not prohibited. Magical photos taken of Santa and guests.

In the evening, the room will have a more tasteful CHRISTMAS THEME for a ball. A smaller formal dinning room will be magically expanded to accommodate the ice-skating and the ballroom will host drinks and dancing. Everyone attending will get a small 'favour' from the host and hostess - ladies a fan or handkerchief, the men probably a naggin of excellent whiskey.

A santa's grotto has been erected in Padmore park and local children will be permitted to attend Santa and receive a small gift (ball, wooden tops, toy solider, simple dolls etc)

The pond has been magically frozen and decorated for skating.

ACAB | Any Rep | Christmas Trees & Holiday Arrangements

What: Cut Your Own Christmas Tree + Buy Holiday Floral Arrangements
Who: Anyone celebrating the holiday season
Cost: Free to enter, although prices for items to purchase will vary (naturally, the larger the tree, the more expensive they will be; the more complex/larger the arrangements are, the more expensive they will be)
Where: Hillicker Farm in Porchester, England
Why:Get into the holiday spirit
When: December 17th

The Hillicker Farm is hosting an opportunity to come and walk the rows or trees to find the perfect one and cut it yourself; pre-cut trees are also available. Upon request, the tree can be enchanted to twinkle with lights. It will be delivered the following day, so no worries on how to get it home.

The Wildflower Florist shop, owned by the lovely Miss Daffy Potts also has wreaths, arrangements and other holiday florals available for purchase. Some pesky fairies stole a few mistletoes and have been following a few people around the farm with them to cause some mischief; it’s never a good idea to anger a fairy, so do so at your own risk. (They are not subtle in their anger and you may experience sudden terrible luck until amends are made.)

A small variety of hors d'oeuvres and sweet treats from Honeydukes to satisfy any palate are found near the entrance, available for a small fee. One free hot chocolate per visitor is offered upon entry to the farm. To enjoy the food, two bonfires with chairs surrounding them have been set up.

What: Garden Club Wreath Decorating
Who: Intended for members of the garden club however, Calla did prepare a few extras in case anyone brought friends along with them.
Cost: N/A
Where: In one of the greenhouses.
Why: As a last get-together before the winter holidays.
When: December 14, 1892

For their final event of the calendar year, the garden club is hosting a wreath decorating event. Calla has gone ahead and premade the base wreaths and there will be a few different colorings and types of evergreen needles. But beyond the wreath itself, everything else is up to the individual. She has brought in some decorating elements like pinecones, ribbons, preserved berries, flowers, etc but everyone is also welcome to bring along their own elements like ornaments and whatnot if they want a personal touch.

She's worked with the house elves to have warm egg nog, hot chocolate, and butterbeer (all in the school-approved, alcohol-free variations) as well as Christmas cookies and sweets.

The wreaths, in theory, are enchanted to not discolor until after Christmas and to not shed on the way home with students - but while she tried hard, she isn't a charms prodigy. So they may work or they may not.

What: Annual Upperclassmen Christmas Party
Who: Organized by [Insert NPC 7th year name here]
Most 6th and 7th years, and some particularly cool 5th years and/or Quidditch team players. Generally, Head Boys/Girls are not invited for obvious reasons, and any Prefect in attendance can expect to be hazed until they participate. So they won't spill the beans, you see.
Cost: BYO libations, snacks, entertainment strongly encouraged
Where: The "Come and Go Room" is located on the seventh floor in the left corridor of Hogwarts castle. There is a hidden entrance opposite the tapestry depicting the attempt of Barnabas the Barmy to teach trolls ballet. The way to open the room is to walk past it three times thinking about what one needs, and the door will appear. Students may not realize this room is what it is, but those with direct knowledge of the event will know to walk at precisely this spot and think, "I need a place to celebrate Christmas with my friends without worry."
Why: Come on, let your hair down! Students enjoy this time where they can loosen up a bit outside of the purview of chaperones, and share gifts with friends before they head off on what is, for many, their last holiday break! Other students look forward to the invite as this might be their first acquaintance to the finer pleasures in life - like good cider or brandy, a well-rolled cigarette, or a chance to finally catch the eye of a classmate with their impressive dance moves.
When: Saturday, December 10th, after dinnertime

Students at Hogwarts have often whispered about a long tradition of holding this highly secret not-official-not-endorsed Christmas party among older students. Generally, the party starts with tame drinks and snacks and Christmas cheer in the well-decorated room. Christmas gifts might be exchanged, plans for break made, and then things quickly turn into rowdy revelry with plenty of GAMES, from cards to musical chairs. Much to everyone's dismay, the night typically ends with a drunken musical rendition of "Hoggy Warty Hogwarts", and the host will secretly nominate someone to carry the tradition to next year.

This party has a storied legacy of legendary outcomes: new loves, new quarrels, shocking revelations, and a fair share of inebriated embarassment. Even if you don't particularly care for your classmates, if you want to know anything about what people are whispering about for the rest of this month, you'll want to be there.
