We're once again counting down the days until Christmas and to help us all get in the holiday spirit, we're going to play a game! For those of us who were here last Christmas, we all remember this game quite fondly. The idea was thought up by our resident statistician, Patronus, and implemented by our dearly loved RoseFirebolt (we miss you, Rosie!). For those who were not here, and for those who need a refresher on the premise, here's how this game will go. Below you'll see a Christmas Calendar. Each day in December, at varying times of the day (to promote fairness for members in all time zones to get a chance to play), we will "open" one of the ornaments to reveal a Harry Potter character.
"How is this a game?", you ask. Well, a day before revealing the character, KCMarauder or I will give you a clue so you can try to guess who the next character will be. You only get one guess per day, and the first person to guess correctly will earn 50 PFF points! If you won the day before, you are not eligible to win the next day (so if you're the first to guess correctly today, you can't play tomorrow, but you can play the day after that!) Some clues may be easy, some may be hard. Some characters are well-known, some are lesser known. There is no order, so don't waste time trying to pick up a pattern!
The people, in their fear, were wrong about this character for many a year.
