12 Days of Christmas celebrated with new Harry Potter content

Author J K Rowling announced on Pottermore, the Harry Potter Website, that she will celebrate the 12 days of Christmas by releasing some new Harry Potter content.

We’re feeling extra generous this year, so we’re bringing you early gifts this Christmas. Starting Friday, December 12, we’ll be releasing a festive surprise for you every day at 1pm GMT (8am EST).

With wonderful writing by J.K. Rowling in Moments from Half-Blood Prince, shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two, make sure you don’t miss out – just visit pottermore.com and answer our rhyming riddles to unwrap a #PottermoreChristmas surprise every day.

The Pottermore Editor quashes excitement by clarifying:

12 days of festive surprises and accompanying rhyming riddles refer to new potions and Moments in addition to several new entries by J.K. Rowling that will be posted on pottermore.com between 12th and 23rd December… Sorry to disappoint fans, but there will not be a set of 12 new short stories…

This clarification was necessary after the Buzzfeed buzz and HuffPost’s huffing and puffing about 12 new Harry Potter short stories.
