Whether you’re in college, working, or somewhere else in the muggle world everything seems to be coming to a screeching halt for Thanksgiving Break… Or more importantly the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I thought how fitting would it be to take a look at what a Harry Potter Thanksgiving would look like. Thanksgiving whether it be with friends or family there is always a mixed bag around the table. Well, Harry’s life would be no different, well except for the magic part and quidditch instead of football. Sorry muggles.
Ron Weasley & Hermione Granger
The first two people you invite to Thanksgiving and it’s almost insulting you ask because they will definitely be there.
The mother hen a.k.a. head chef of Thanksgiving dinner who is whipping potatoes, preparing the apple pie and asking you to see how much time is left on the turkey. Like mom, relax. It’s only been one hour we still have four to go.
The here today, gone tomorrow relative. Everyone is excited to see him, he graces you with his presence, and then (SNAP) he evaporates into thin air faster than you can say Expecto Patronum.

The one person who tries to help, but always finds a way to be in the way.
Everybody has that one person everyone feels like they have to invite but is just a tad bit crazy to actually want there. I can see her now probably sitting by herself reading a magazine upside down, and raving about unicorns.
If you are lucky enough maybe you have your significant other with you as well. Just give her the look and she will save you from that crazy aunt you can't get away from.
Oh, Sirius you escaped Azkaban again? So pencil you in for Thanksgiving? Not a fat chance Sirius will be there. You have a better chance of Draco catching the snitch over Harry than Sirius coming. A perfect example of that one pesky relative whom always has an excuse why they can’t be at Thanksgiving.
Fred & George Weasley
Raving about their newest inventions, and boasting how successful they are. All while you’re sitting over here going what am I doing with my life?
Okay, maybe this is a stretch because Dudley and Harry didn’t exactly see eye to eye but hear me out. There is one relative who is always first in line to get the food, and always seems to find a way to get seconds and thirds before the rest of us can take a bite (i.e. Me – Sorry, Mom and Dad).
