    Interesting that it's the 'Christmas Calamity' but everything is from the Yule ball, when Yule is about as un-Christian as you can get.

    @Magpie31 - appreciate the british background you shared ... very different than across the pond where separation of church and state is constitutionally protected (at least in theory)

    @kiheikid I moved from the UK to Thailand about 4 and a half years ago, and I teach in a private international school over here. I've sort of become used to explaining these things to my American colleagues when my new British arrivals are confused as to why we aren't doing a nativity / having Good Friday off etc.

    In all honesty, I never realised how British the Harry Potter books were until I taught Philosopher's stone with my first international class. My Welsh students and I were so confused as to why our Thai, Chinese and American students were looking bewildered! I ended up buying Christmas crackers etc for them!

    HAHAHAHA really? This seems fake (not the usual pictures style), they usually use current incontratus (tonks, Mr. Weasley, Moody) with purple shining; this ones seems like photos from the film photoshoped. But hey, maybe it is real. We must wait "just" 7 days for Christmass.

    @Vestigious - did you check your app’s special assignments tab? that is where the screenshot comes from.

    I'm surprised too @Thunder2k. Usually Wizard Unite Hub or Game Press has info up well in advance.

    I have already found a Yule Ball Program (1 of 5). I am thinking this will mostly be found in a fortress or Portkey Portmanteau.

    However, I’m sure it was in the fortress since I have been using the Runes for Legend oh Hogwarts mostly.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Hagrid & Madame Maxime and Angelina & Fred have been frequent visitors on my block of late. I already have 5 of 9 of Hagrid & Madame Maxime. Need to scope out Harry & Parvati and Hermione & Viktor not sighting of these 2 couples yet. ☺️

    @Owlx — haha, “peedles” was code for a #1 and “poodles” was code for a #2 when our kids were much younger and we were out and about looking for the right facilities !!

    @Thunder2k @Li11ee - hmm, wondering whether @HPWUFazes is on vacation and therefore no official source to leak brilliant event info to guide writers and WU-tubers. you would think there would be at least one back-up leaker.

    And @kiheikid I’m only counting 14 green books from this event... hopefully part two has 16? Or maybe some from community day?

    Yay! I can finally plot it all out! The "game plan" for me is to get all the fragments that have locations to show Santa Claus, IN. I think I'll be able to if I get through the first 2 sets of assignments tomorrow and then complete the rest on Wednesday.

    The plotting begins......

    Hmmm. I am a little disappointed that portkey tasks are back while I am still on crutches, but I will find a way. Not at all fussed by the bonus task as there is nothing I want - no badge and no books!

    Am I reading it right that there aren't any snazzy potions help? Bummer, my vault is depleted from the last event. #firstworldproblems

    @Li11ee - only 2 potent exstimulo potions as part of free gift bundle. but there are ingredients as rewards for steps 1 and 2, although the potions corresponding to those ingredients are long-brew-time potions (TTD ingredients as step 1 reward and potent exstimulo ingredients for step 2 reward)
