But what about for your social media? Or your gratitude journal? You decorate your home (and maybe even your car or office cubicle) for the holidays, why not decorate other aspects of your life, too?

26 Harry Potter Christmas Quotes

Have yourself a Happy Christmas and spread the cheer with these great quotes from Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and more of our favorite characters from the wizarding world.

Sorcerer’s Stone

“Merry Christmas,” said Ron sleepily as Harry scrambled out of bed and pulled on his bathrobe. “You, too,” said Harry. “Will you look at this? I’ve got some presents!”
“What did you expect, turnips?”

Catch me joking about turnips every Christmas morning!

“Oh, no, she’s made you a Weasley sweater.” – Ron

What we Potterhead wouldn’t give for a Weasley sweater.

“Your father left this in my possession before he died. It is time it was returned to you. Use it well. A Very Merry Christmas to you.” – Albus Dumbledore’s note to Harry

What kid didn’t want an invisibility cloak after this book?

“One can never have enough socks. Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.” – Albus Dumbledore

Socks are always a good holiday gift.

“And you’re not sitting with the prefects today, either. Christmas is a time for family.” – George Weasley

Family is the heart of the holiday.

“Come one, cheer up, it’s nearly Christmas.” – Hagrid

Iconic. Completely iconic. This quote gives me all the magical feels!

“Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban.” – J.K. Rowling

I can just smell that crisp air now. Christmas at Hogwarts… I’m sure there is nothing like it.

Chamber of Secrets

“I’m warning you now, boy–any funny business, anything at all–and you’ll be in that cupboard from now until Christmas.”- Uncle Vernon

Cupboards are cozy, right?

Well, you’re expelling us aren’t you?” said Ron “Not today, Mr. Weasley.” Snape looked as though Christmas had been canceled. – J.K. Rowling

I have chills.

Prisoner of Azkaban

“Oy! Presents!” – Ron

Easily quote-able for Christmas morning!

“Merry Christmas!” said Dumbledore as Harry, Ron, and Hermione approached the table. “As there are so few of us, it seemed foolish to use the House tables… Sit down, sit down!”

A cozy Christmas indeed!

“Two weeks before the end of term, the sky lightened suddenly to a dazzling, opaline white and the muddy grounds were revealed one morning covered in glittering frost. Inside the castle, there was a buzz of Christmas in the air. Professor Flitwick, the Charms teacher, had already decorated his classroom with shimmering lights that turned out to be real, fluttering fairies.” – J.K. Rowling

Goodness can be found even in the dark.

“Hogsmeade looked like a Christmas card; the little thatched cottages and shops were all covered in a layer of crisp snow; there were holly wreaths on the doors and strings of enchanted candles hanging in the trees.” – J.K. Rowling

I can’t be the only one who dreamed of visiting Hogsmeade. Especially at Christmastime.

“Harry and Hermione made their way to the back of the room, where there was a small, vacant table between the window and a handsome Christmas tree which stood next to the fireplace. Ron came back five minutes later, carrying three foaming tankards of hot Butterbeer. ‘Happy Christmas!’ he said happily, raising his tankard. Harry drank deeply. It was the most delicious thing he’d ever tasted and seemed to heat every bit of him from the inside.” – J.K. Rowling

Butterbeer gives the warmest, coziest feeling. All you need is a mug of butterbeer and some good friends!

“I always stay at Hogwarts for Christmas and Easter holidays, and I don’t ever want to go back to Privet Drive.” – Harry

There’s no place like home.

Goblet of Fire

“Dobby is only wanting to wish Harry Potter ‘Merry Christmas’ and bring him a present, sir! Harry Potter did say Dobby could come and see him sometimes, sir!” – Dobby

A visit from Dobby is the best gift ever.

“The Yule Ball is of course a chance for us all to — er — let our hair down.”- Minerva McGonagall

Can you imagine the grandeur?!

Order Of The Phoenix

His heart swelled with happiness and relief, and he felt like joining in as they heard Sirius tramping past their door toward Buckbeak’s room, singing “God Rest Ye Merry, Hippogriffs” at the top of his voice. – J.K. Rowling

Oh Sirius. We miss you so.

“Mistletoe,” said Luna dreamily, pointing at a large clump of white berries placed almost over Harry’s head. He jumped out from under it. “Good thinking,” said Luna seriously. “It’s often infested with nargles.” – Luna

A missed connection perhaps?

“Harry had never in all his life had such a Christmas dinner. A hundred fat, roast turkeys; mountains of roast and boiled potatoes; platters of chipolatas; tureens of buttered peas, silver boats of thick, rich gravy and cranberry sauce — and stacks of wizard crackers every few feet along the table… Harry pulled a wizard cracker with Fred and it didn’t just bang, it went off with a blast like a cannon and engulfed them all in a cloud of blue smoke, while from the inside exploded a rear admiral’s hat and several live, white mice.” -J.K. Rowling

A cozy and magical, if not chaotic, Christmas dinner.

HAVE A VERY HARRY CHRISTMAS – Dobby’s banner in the Room of Requirement

RIP Dobby

Half-Blooded Prince

“It’s Christmas, and it’s not a crime to want to come to a party. Just this once, we’ll forget any punishment; you may stay, Draco.” – Horace Slughorn

Forgiveness and the holidays go hand in hand.

“I didn’t think of giving Kreacher anything. Do people usually give their house-elves Christmas presents?” – Harry

Oh Harry, you summer child.

“I never promised Hermione anything,” Ron mumbled. “I mean, all right, I was going to go to Slughorn’s Christmas party with her, but she never said…just as friends…I’m a free agent… -Ron

Ron denying the inevitable.

Deathy Hallows

“Harry, I think it’s Christmas Eve!” – Hermione

What a wonderful discovery during a dark time.

What a sweet thought, indeed.
