Throw on your costumes yet again and pair up with your closest friends, it’s time to find out if your favourite Professors will give you a trick or will they give you a treat?!
While you make your way around the castle and knock on the doors of our professors, you better hope you land on one in a good mood. Trick or Treating at Hogwarts is like Russian Roulette with sweets, you never know if what appears to be a treat is actually a trick!
A certain grumpy professor threw a screaming yo-yo out into the corridor on the fifth floor. Don’t pick it up! I repeat, don’t pick up any random yo-yo’s you see lying about. Let the house elves take care of them, your ears will thank you!
The seventh floor has a few doors for your trick or treating pleasure. Bright green lollipops that look a little too suspicious, if you ask me, and these delightful Sherbet Lemon cakes! The hospital wing had a plethora of chocolate wands and frogs for the picking. All these treats, this journalist feels like she’s going to get sick by the end of the week!
Knocking on Daisy’s door is likely to get you put into a bubble. As I made my way down to the keepers hut, I knocked and she sent an Ebublio jinx at me! So stay away from the grumpy dwarf!
Venom and Flutterby have slightly tamer treats, if you can catch the butterflies that carried Flutterby’s sweets away. So if anyone finds some random sweets, leave them in the dungeons and it’d be much appreciated! Dagworth isn’t one you want to wake up as she came to the door at first with a Tentacula plant, but be extra sweet and our wonderful Herbology teacher may just give you a wonderful treat. Our very own Adler of Ravenclaw was handing out books with treats… I knocked for ages before he even answered… and he gave me a book? Does this look like class to you Professor?
There’s plenty more treats and so many more tricks, thanks Professor Priaulx… So get out there and discover them all! Trick or Treating ends on Halloween! Happy Hunting!
