    She always hung a wreath, even after my father passed—apparently it was a Muggle tradition. This year it was the last thing she bought, the final decoration, like she was teetering between memory and a new beginning.

    I watched from my place on the couch as she rubbed her fingers over the sticky pine needles. Her petite hand shook slightly, whether with love or sadness, I did not know.

    Looking up to me, I saw the glistening liquid in her eyes, and I knew it was the former.

    “You hang it this year, Remus, as a tribute to your father.”

    Title: Pixie Wishes

    Harry found Luna with her face buried in a Christmas wreath. At first, he watched as she rubbed her cheek against it. When he thought he could no longer ignore his curiosity, he cleared his throat to let her know he was there.

    “Hello, Luna,” Harry said as she turned towards him. “What are you doing?”

    Luna looked at him in her usual dreamy way and answered, “ I was talking to the pixies that live in Christmas wreaths. My father says that Christmas pixies grant wishes if you whisper it to them.”

    Harry smiled, but couldn’t say another word.

    I'm stringing a story with the prompts and the name of the character will only be revealed in the end!

    The snow was falling thick and covering my house like a blanket. I sat by the window, staring without seeing at the white mass spread out before my eyes. I was waiting for my husband to return from work.

    I recollected our wedding day. I smiled indulgently. It was during the Christmas after the Second war of Hogwarts. I had lost my parents in war. He had come to visit me. It being Christmas time, he had no idea as to what to gift me.

    I always smiled when I thought of the wreath that hung on our front door.

    Title: His Doe

    Severus Snape hated Christmas, especially the mistletoe that dangled above his head, and yet he could not look away from it. It was such a useless tradition, but one he had dreamed about for a long time.

    He had always wanted to meet Lily under the mistletoe and now as an old man, his foolish heart craved for it even more. She was gone and yet he still hoped for what could never be.

    “Expecto Patronum,” His whispered, hope blooming in his cold heart.

    Standing at his side was his doe, and for that one moment, his was truly happy.

    Hagrid brought the large boughs into the Great Hall and wrestled them into the proper shape. He carefully bound the edges in twine, perfecting the fastenings with a few twirls of his trusty umbrella. He settled the wreath into its proper place, making sure it was secure, double-checking that no one saw him using his admittedly rudimentary brand of magic. Professor McGonagall, as usual, ignored Hagrid’s flagrant flaunting of the rules, focusing instead on a couple of fourth years being a little too amorous under the mistletoe which the house elves had added to the archway in the entrance hall.

    Title: Garden Gnomes and Christmas Wreaths

    “Daddy! Daddy! There’s a garden gnome in the Christmas wreath!” Four-year-old Rose Weasley ran up to her father as he walked into the warm living room. “Look!”

    Ron let out a loud chuckle as he spotted the garden gnome trying to free itself. It was stuck right in the middle of the wreath, its fat body too large to wriggle free.

    Ron quickly walked over and picked up the gnome by its big toe and gave it a shake. But the wreath wouldn’t come off.

    With a frown, Ron said, “Let’s just leave it, Rose. Your mother can fix it.”

    Like I said earlier, this is a string of the same story.


    The very next day, after he had presented me the wreath, he turned up on my doorstep. I was both shocked and pleased to find him there. There was something about his manner that attracted me towards him.
    I considered it to be very decent of him to visit me when he was facing tough times himself.

    He took me out to dinner that night. It was a very pleasant evening and he offered to escort me back home. I had hung Mistletoe on my front door earlier in the day.

    I don’t know what I had been thinking then…

    She looked up at the dark green leaves and white berries of the mistletoe, her heart aching at the loss of her husband. It was going to be her first Christmas since the end of the war spent alone.

    She remembered spending a Christmas with Harry. Just the two of them. They had stayed inside the whole day, and Harry had put up some mistletoe. She couldn’t remember having kissed someone for so long.

    Now he was gone, old age finally catching up to him.

    With a sigh, she sat down in the armchair and whispered, “I miss you, Harry.”
