Christmas is coming, made all the more obvious by the blast of Buzzfeed posts such as 33 signs it's Christmas at Hogwarts) and for the event J.K. Rowling and Pottermore have many presents coming! From December 12th there will be new pieces of information (including stuff on Malfoy and Fortescue) available each day, new potions to brew and lots of riddles to solve as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince begins to open it's pages.

In other festive treats, something called the #TwitterYuleBall2014 is occurring on December 20th! Find out more here.

Since we have the festive cheer and spirit of giving going, we would encourage you (if you haven't already) to donate some of your spare cash (any amount will help) to Lumos' latest campaign. The campaign is intended to help children with disabilities get the proper school experience. If the joy of helping is not enough, there are also prizes to win including a copy of the Silkworm signed by both Robert Galbraith and J.K. Rowling. 
Get donating and spread the word with your lit selfie and #LetsTalkLumos tweet. Let's get the campaign to 50% this week!
Already involved is Tom Felton:

In other charitable J.K. Rowling persuits, an illustrated book of Jo's speech at Harvard will also be up for sale shortly with proceeds going to Lumos. Check it out here.

As we previously mentioned, Buzzfeed have stepped up the Potter spirit of late and below are just a few of the articles they've posted.

The most interesting article however concerned a Hogwarts mock-up you can enroll at for 4 days next April! more details here.
