Harry Potter fans are in store for a very merry Christmas as author J.K. Rowling announced that leading up to the holiday, she’ll be releasing 12 new stories set in Harry Potter’s wizarding world!
Starting Dec. 12, the famed author will post a story daily at 8:00 a.m. ET daily on the Pottermore website. According to the Pottermore insider newsletter, besides the stories, "shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two" will be hidden on the site. But make sure to brush up on your Harry Potter knowledge, as you’ll have to answer a rhyming riddle to get access to this new content.
This isn't the first time this year Rowling has given fans new material. In July, she posted a tabloid-style story penned by the magical world’s biggest gossip, Rita Skeeter, about Potter and friends attending the Quidditch World Cup. This Halloween, Rowling posted a more than 5,000 word piece about the back story of the infamous character of Dolores Umbridge.
As for the new stories, Rowling hasn’t given any hints as to what to expect, but according to The Telegraph, one of the stories will revolve around Harry Potter’s school mate/nemesis Draco Malfoy.
Nonetheless, Rowling is set to make December an even more magical time of the year.
