J. K. Rowling just can’t quit Harry Potter. Rowling finished the series in 2007 with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and started publishing unrelated novels under her own name and the pen name Robert Galbraith. However, this year she has been returning to her world-famous series, releasing a new short story on her Pottermore website in July, another for Halloween, and announcing that she will pen screenplays for three new films set in the Harry Potter universe.

This week, Rowling announced that she will be releasing 12 “surprises” for Harry Potter fans for the 12 days of Christmas. The fan gifts will include “wonderful writing by J.K. Rowling in Moments from Half-Blood Prince, shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two.”

The new content will start on December 12th with each appearing at 1 pm Greenwich Meantime or 8 am Eastern Standard Time.

Happy Holidays, Potter fans.
