Wizarding Holiday Story Contest


Note: This contest has been extended through January. Submissions are now due by 11:59 pm ET on the 31st of January.

In the muggle world kids everywhere are familiar with the names Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and Tiny Tim, and each year muggle families all over the world look forward to reading such classic Christmas stories as The Night Before Christmas, The Polar Express, and A Christmas Carol.

And so it begs the question:
What holiday stories and beloved characters do wizard children grow up loving and asking to hear over and over again?


The challenge this month is to share your favorite Wizard Christmas Tale. And please note one important change: In light of the coming holiday season our contest will be ending earlier than usual, all entries must be submitted no later than midnight on January 31, 2013.

Good Luck and Happy Holidays!
