Harry Potter Christmas Scenes Quick Reference Guide
Which Harry Potter Christmas film scene is your favorite? It’s a toss up for me between Harry’s heartwarming first Christmas at Hogwarts and the grandeur of the Yule Ball. Such magical moments. What I wouldn’t give to see those 12 Christmas trees in the Great Hall too!
Absolute perfection was achieved in the books and movies for each holiday scene from heartwarming to hopeless. So much so that many consider Harry Potter movies to be Christmas films. You can often find the series as a part of Christmas movie marathons on major networks during the month of December or being promoted across streaming platforms.
The series is definitely mandatory viewing at my house during the holiday season. However, sometimes time is tight and (gasp!) we can’t fit them all in. Therefore, we choose based on the Christmas scene(s). Here is the definitive list for each film. Happy Harry Christmas viewing muggle friends!
The first Christmas Harry experiences in the series, at Hogwarts, or many could argue his first happy Christmas ever. Harry’s life has changed dramatically in a short time and he now has several things he’s always been missing-friendship, love, hope, acceptance, and a safe place to call home.
The presents are a nice bonus too! The scene with matching H and R sweaters always gives me the warm fuzzies. Wizards’ chess in an elaborate decorated Great Hall is a real treat as well.
Chamber Of Secrets
The innocence of Christmas as a child/tween is still palpable here. There’s excitement, but the main characters are embarking on a tricky mission which is why they stay at Hogwarts. A little danger, some mystery, and some hold your breath moments for sure.
However, the Great Hall scene still brings the magic and warmth of the holiday season. Don’t miss the short but stunning sequence with horse drawn carriages galloping across the snow in front of Hogwarts too. Well done to all who made this gorgeous sequence possible.
Prisoner Of Azkaban
Hogsmeade. That’s it, that’s the post. Just kidding, but seriously the beyond picturesque snow covered village, Honeyduke’s and butterbeer. Christmas practically jumps off the screen. Oh and Harry gets a Firebolt. Yes!
Goblet Of Fire
The Yule Ball!! Ahhh-absolutely stunning! The formal wizard wear, the gowns, the ice, the music-what’s not to love? Actually, the moments aren’t all magical for the characters, but the scenes are a delight for the eyes. Plus we get to see Dobby gift Harry a present-spoiler-it’s socks.
Order Of The Phoenix
Harry’s first Christmas away from Hogwarts, but not before his first kiss. Such a sweet Christmasy moment under the mistletoe. Christmas with Sirius is one of the highlights for the series as it’s the first semblance of a real family outside of Hogwarts Harry has experienced. It’s enhanced when his Hogwarts friends/family join him.
Things are getting intense in the wizarding world, but we still see Christmas come and go (mainly in the background) in this film. Festive decorations are on point complete with lots of mistletoe. My school never had mistletoe. Did yours? I digress. Harry gets his worst gift, maggots from Kreacher. Not my ideal gift at all. Worst of all the Burrow is attacked on Christmas by deatheaters.
Deathly Hallows Part 1
A heavy and dark Christmas at Godrick’s Hollow. For Harry seeing his parent’s grave is a BIG moment. The main characters are running out of steam as they work to find the horcruxes. The background of Godrick’s Hollow is gorgeous, almost as beautiful as Hogsmeade, but with a weighty sadness.
Deathly Hallows Part 2
Since the book was split into two movies, there’s no Christmas here. Still a great wrap-up for the series, but no trees, butterbeer or presents in sight. Sigh.
