J.K. Rowling’s website/game Pottermore announced a short advent calendar last December. Every day, from December 12 to 23, we’ve been able to open a virtual little window on Harry Potter’s world, being treated with a bunch of new writings by J.K. Rowling herself!
Just to put everyone straight on the misleading media reports of ‘Twelve New Stories for Christmas’. As true Potter fans worked out straight away, our 12 days of festive surprises and accompanying rhyming riddles refer to new potions and Moments in addition to several new entries by J.K. Rowling that will be posted on pottermore.com between 12th and 23rd December. Sorry to disappoint fans, but there will not be a set of 12 new short stories, one for each day of Christmas. Even Pottermore wouldn’t be that generous.
How many of you followed the Pottermore advent day by day? How many of you missed it out?
Well, it doesn’t matter at all. If you missed something during the last month or you just want to reread your favourite stories, I’ve tailored for you a list of the scenes of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince where you’ll be able to find the new notes written by J.K. Rowling.
