'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Harry Potter A-Z

A Saturday post I have been doing to spread the Harry Potter love and to take us all on a trip down memory lane :).

Y is for The Yule Ball
"The Yule Ball is of course a chance for us all to - er - let our hair down."

'The Yule Ball is a tradition of the Triwizard Tournament. It is a formal dance held on the evening of Yule (the pagan Winter solstice/Christmas celebration) of a tournament year, and is opened by the tournament champions and their partners. At Hogwarts, where the Yule Ball was held in 1994, only students of fourth year or above were permitted to attend, though younger students could also go if an older student invited them to accompany them. The ball begins at 8:00 p.m. and ends at midnight.'

  1. Oooooh the Yule Ball was sooooo pretty in the movies! So so gorgeous, and detailed! When I was at London Studio Tour I saw it up front and it looked so thought through. Gorgeous.
    And it was fun to read about, how Hermione shone among them all. <3

  2. Hmm,looks like I'd missed this one >.< Anyways the Yule Ball is so incredibly dreamy ♥ It was such a perfect way of showing how our characters had matured since the first book...although it was fun that they were all still kind of awkward about everything LOL The movie really did an amazing job of making everything look like an enchanted ice palace too!!


Please leave a comment, I love reading each and every one of them :).
