Okay fellow Potterheads, we need to breathe. In…out…in…oh who am I kidding; WE ARE GETTING MORE POTTER, PEOPLE.

No, it’s not the much sought after Potter prequel that we all dream about (I need dreamboat student Sirius Black in my life immediately), but we will be getting not one, but 12 days of new Potter material from the Queen herself. That’s right, J.K. Rowling and the team over at Pottermore will be revealing 12 new Harry Potter stories over the 12 days of Christmas.

On the fourth day of Christmas our true Queen gave to us: four marauding marauders…

Can you tell what I’m most hoping for? Is it obvious?

The event so festively titled “PotterMore Christmas” will begin on December 12th and a new story will be posted at 8am EST everyday until Christmas.

A Facebook page set up for the event says that we can expect “wonderful new writing by J.K. Rowling in Moments from ‘Half-Blood Prince’, shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two, make sure you don’t miss out – just visit and answer our rhyming riddles to unwrap a #PottermoreChristmas surprise every day.”

Okay, so odds are probably against us getting any sort of Marauders fun, but I think we can expect great things over these twelve days.

The 12 days of Potter follow the release of a story about everyone’s most hated character, Dolores Umbridge, at Halloween and a short story about the present day trio that was released during the Quidditch World Cup.

Make sure you tune into Pottermore starting on December 12th to take part in all the fun and see what fun and interesting things J.K. Rowling has in store for us this holiday season!

Happy Harry-mas everyone!
