Since I signed up for two blogfest in one day, I posted the Midwinter blogfest first and this one after I hope you will visit both post and leave comments for each.
Now for the: Harry Potter Blogfest hosted by Michael at In Time…
Rules: In honor of HP, I would like to have an HP blogfest. In 500 words, I would like you to create a scene with any of the HP characters from any of the seven books. It could be anything you want. Funny, magical, serious, etc. And for an added twist, let's have it set during the holidays. Christmas or Thanksgiving.
Christmas at the Weasleys
Mr. Weasley brought out his newest muggle toy. “Let’s see how this works.”
Fred and George helped him install the turkey fryer outside.
“Be careful,” Mrs. Weasley called from the door.
“Yes, Mum.” The twins said together.
“Not to worry.” Mr. Weasley rubbed his hands together. “Add the oil Fred.”
George complied; Fred retrieved the turkey from the kitchen.
“Now, how do I turn it on?” Mr. Weasley asked.
Hermione joined the Weasley bunch as they gathered to watch the new muggle machine make dinner. “Electricity,” she said.
Mr. Weasley scratched his head. “Hmm, that does pose a problem. We don’t have electricity. Not to worry, not to worry.”
Mr. Weasley waived his wand, hot oil bubbled in the fryer, and Fred dropped the turkey in. Woosh, fire shot out, licked the air and ignited the dried grass. Mr. Weasley quickly quenched it all with drenching water from a magical bucket. The smell of burned oil and turkey lingered.
“Dangerous contraption the muggles have here, how ever do they manage it?” asked Mr. Weasley.
