[Yes, a side note already: Does anyone else think this is the funniest line in the first Harry Potter movie? Or even recognize it? Zach and I make fun of it every time we watch it...]
Whilst caroling for my ward FHE last week, someone started singing "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Ok, A) that song was NOT on the approved list, and B) it's reeeeeally long (or so it seemed--it was cold outside). In rebellion, a friend *cough*Bradley*cough and I made up a Harry Potter version. We thought it was hilarious--and I still think it is. So, as a special Christmas treat for you all, I will share it with you.
You all know how the song goes, right? So, get that going in your head and I'll supply the changes--I'm not writing out the whole song, because that would be ridiculous.
"On the first day of Christmas Hermione* gave to me: A Phoenix in a holly tree..."
*Or whatever other HP character you want to use. Bradley really likes Hermione.
Second Day: 2 Wrackspurts / Crumple-Horned Snorkacks (take your pick--we couldn't decide which one we liked better)
Third Day: 3 Deathly Hallows
Fourth Day: 4 Firebolts
Fifth Day: 5 GOLDEN SNITCHES
Sixth Day: 6 Fizzing Whizbees
Seventh Day: 7 Horcruxes (yes, we know this would not be a good gift, but they had to be in there)
Eigth Day: 8 Owls a-flying
Ninth Day: 9 Quidditch Cups
Tenth Day: 10 Hippogriffs
Eleventh Day: 11 Hogwarts letters (get it? 'Cause you're 11 when you get your letter?)
Twelveth Day: 12 Wands a-waving
Maybe some day we'll make a music video...
