"Once again I'll have to listen to Colonel Sarcasm go on about how I screwed up. 'Struck out on the Philosopher's Stone again, huh, Ed? How am I supposed to keep funding this goose chase? Money doesn't grow on trees there, CHIEF! Huh? Ed? Where'd you go? Oh, there you are. I didn't see you under all that paperwork, seeing as how you're so short and all. Ah hah hah hah hah!' *groans*" [Flame vs. Fullmetal]

Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny find themselves in a Muggle hotel in Godric's Hollow on the Winter Solstice. During an enthusiastic snowball fight, Harry and Ginny step through a stone circle that transports them seventeen years into the past. This may be the only chance Harry has to spend with his parents, and it may also be what he needs to figure out his relationship with Ginny.
The warning is for later chapters.
Edit: So, this was originally strictly a Harry/Ginny fic, but Ron and Hermione kept trying to get together too, so I felt like I had to change the category. And there's a bit of Lily/James in there too, though they're already married, and I've also added a bit of Remus/Tonks. Poor Sirius is the only Singleton (though he may manage to get a girl of his own)!
Edit: This story was cannon until after Deathly Hallows came out, so I changed it to Alternate Universe, but it's still pretty close to cannon. Only a few things will end up being different when the story ends.
Edit: I've changed all of the chapter titles to the titles of Christmas songs that I felt reflected the events in the chapters best. Tell me what you think! Does it fit?

“Muggle women wear them, Archie, not the men, they wear this.”
Remember ol’ Archie from GOF? Well, now you’ll know why he refused to give up his flowery gown for a pair of trousers.

True love does not end at death do us part, but lasts forever. Harry and Ginny have had a lifetime together, but what happens beyond then? Follow their last day together on earth.
Take my hand and lead me to salvation. Take my love, for love is everlasting. And remember, the truth that once was spoken, to love another person is to see the face of God.
I am Merlin_Helz from the Beta boards.
This story has been given a facelift! Why not give it another read?

Starting from that dreadful day at Dumbledore's funeral, Ginny has been endlessly waiting to see Harry again. Two years pass without word and Ginny starts to lose faith that Harry will ever come back to her, since he has not done so since the fall of Voldemort. Then an unexpected visitor arrives at Ginny's new flat, causing all Ginny thought she knew to be put into question.
So Sorry about the huge and inexcuseable wait for chappie 5. It's in the queue now 8/19/07.

Harry gets given a shoebox of Lily's junk. To him half of it should go straight in the bin because it means nothing to him, but had it meant anything to Lily?
