Fred & George's Hogwarts History Contest
They've done it again those Masters of Mischief!
"It was a dull afternoon in the common room," as George tells it, "Fred and I were in dire need of entertainment."
"Then Hermione came in," adds Fred, "Prattling on and on to poor Neville about some useless facts she'd read about in Hogwarts, A History; and the idea just came to me."
"It was Brilliant!"
After strolling down to the library and removing one of the nicer copies of Hogwarts, A History from the shelves; Fred and George holed up in a corner out of Madam Pince's sight and began magically changing many of the entries. The result turned out to be quite entertaining indeed.
Your task this month is to share with all of us one of the historical passages you think they changed best. So scurry on up to the Hogwarts library and copy down a few choice paragraphs. Keep your entry to 750 words or less though, for if you try to copy down more Madam Pince may just catch you.
