A Magical Time of Year is a holiday album in support of J.K. Rowling’s charity, Lumos. It features a number of actors from across the Wizarding World and is available to stream and purchase now.

Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein) sings the Christmas classic “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”



Sudol’s Fantastic Beasts castmate Claudia Kim is also featured on the album. Kim sings a song perfect for Hogwarts in December, “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
