The Carol Challenge!

So whether you are getting ready for a summer of pavlova and days at the beach like me or you're up in the wintry North, Christmas is only a couple of weeks away and we are bringing the festive cheer to MNFF!

This month we are taking some classic (and modern) Christmas songs and giving them a Harry Potter twist. Check out the list of titles below and choose one (or more) to base your poem/song on. You can go with the original music or just write a completely new poem to fit the title. The choice is yours. I have provided the original carol/song title in brackets. I'm sure there is something to suit everyone.

Please do not use more than 4 consecutive words from the original song.

  • An Azkaban Midwinter [In The Bleak Midwinter]
  • Dumbledore’s Message [Gabriel’s Message]
  • Hogwarts for the Holidays [(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays]
  • Light Of The Lonely Wizard's/Witch's Heart [Light of the Lonely Pilgrim's Heart]
  • Wizarding Winter Hymnal [White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes]
  • Red Ribbon Kneazles [Red Ribbon Foxes by A Fine Frenzy]
  • Molly’s Jolly Christmas [Holly Jolly Christmas]
  • The Seeker’s Carol [The Sussex Carol]
  • Yule Ball [Cool Yule]
  • Ted’s Carol [I’ll Be Home for Christmas]
  • Chestnuts Roasting on a Hogwarts Fire [The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)]
  • Carol of the Elves [Carol of the Bells]
  • Dragonhide Boots [Boots by The Killers]
  • Goodbye, Hogwarts (covered in snow) [Goodbye, England by Laura Marling]
  • I Heard The Nymphs On Christmas Day [I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day]
  • Lumos Merrily On High [Ding Dong Merrily On High]
  • The Holly and the Nargles [The Holly and the Ivy]
