Harry Potter is a series of films of sorts, littered with hidden details that even die-hard Wizarding World fans will sometimes miss.
Insider previously found a number of hidden details in the films, but now we have scanned the films again for a Christmas edition with hidden details.
Harry Potter is the ultimate Christmas tour for many fans, and the films are filled with magical Christmas moments.
These holiday moments include an ice skating snowman on a cake, Santa Claus on a broomstick, and Christmas carol ghosts.

There are Christmas carol ghosts in Sorcerer's Stone

Hermione enters the great hall to say goodbye to Harry and Ron, who are in the middle of a wizarding chess game, to say goodbye before leaving Hogwarts for the Christmas break.
However, just before entering the hall, she passes a trio of ghosts who happen to be Christmas carols. They sing Christmas carols and are even dressed up as Dickensian Christmas carols, with top hats and hymn books to complete the look.
In Sorcerer's Stone, Professor Flitwick uses the Wingardium Leviosa spell to hang up Christmas decorations

There is another Christmas detail in this scene: just before Hermione goes to Harry and Ron to pause their game, we see Professor Flitwick halfway through the decorations of the huge Christmas tree in the great hall.
He uses Wingardium Leviosa to do this, which is remarkable considering how important this spell is to this film. The tree is decorated with ornaments that look like pheasants and peacocks, as well as stars, moons, balls and candles.
Also in Sorcerer's Stone, Christmas cards can be seen on a notice board in the Gryffindor common room

Harry gets what is definitely his best Christmas in this film and, for the first time, Christmas presents.
After walking from his room to the Gryffindor common room, he opens his presents for the first time. One of them, of course, is the invisibility cloak, which he quickly tries on. As we do that, we get a look at the larger common room and see how Christmassy it is.
The handmade Christmas cards that are stuck to a notice board behind Harry are particularly nice details. You can almost imagine the set designer's children doing these themselves for the production.
Horse-drawn sleighs carry students across the frozen lake in "Chamber of Secrets"

The "Harry Potter" films are full of little moments that remind us of how magical the wizarding world is and how it gets even better at Christmas time.
Hogwarts in the snow looks beautiful anyway, but it looks picturesque when the sleighs carry students across the snow in front of the castle.

The large hall ceiling is really fascinating. It usually burns with floating candles, but there have also been starry nights and violent storms. However, it looks most magical when snow falls gently from the enchanted ceiling and floats through the hall.
A witch hat is on the snowman the Weasley twins build in "Prisoner of Azkaban".

Harry's invisibility cloak becomes a plot point again as he tries to sneak out of Hogwarts Castle to go to Hogsmeade with the rest of his friends. Fred and George, who end up giving him the Marauder's Map, catch Harry red-handed when they see his footprints in the snow.
When you see this, you are almost done building a snowman - which is a pretty common practice whether you are a witch, a wizard, or a muggle. But what defines this snowman from the wizarding world is the witch hat they put on their heads.
In "Goblet of Fire" the song by the Yule Ball band is called "Do the Hippogriff" and its lyrics are very Wizarding World themes

The great hall is transformed into a hideout for the White Queen for a winter celebration of the Goblet of Fire. The ball starts out as a classic occasion, but soon becomes more of an appearance than a ball with the arrival of a wizarding band.
The band is called Weird Sisters and the members have been portrayed by some legendary musicians, including Radiohead's Jarvis Cocker, Steve Mackay and Johnny Greenwood and Phil Selway.
The song they sing in the Christmas ball is called "Do the Hippogriff" and its lyrics are equally magical:
"Move your body like a hairy troll /
Learn to rock and roll
Turn around like a crazy elf
Dancing alone /
Boogie down like a unicorn
Don't stop until dawn
Put your hands in the air
Like an ogre, I just don't care. "
In "Order of the Phoenix" a Santa Claus flies with a broom.

Little moments like this make the magic in "Harry Potter" so real and believable - it has invaded your everyday life, and Christmas is no different.
While Harry and the Weasleys celebrate Christmas with a recovering Arthur at 12 Grimmauld Place, a little Santa Claus can be seen flying across the room on a broomstick. If only we muggles had such magical Christmas decorations.
There is also a disturbing looking doll up on the tree in "Order of the Phoenix"

In the same shot in which Santa Claus zooms through the room, we see the award decorations on the top of the Christmas tree: a slightly disturbing-looking angel or a demonic doll.
This is a little less magical Christmas decoration. Instead, it looks like it could be the subject of the next "Conjuring" film.
In "Half-Blood Prince" there is a snowman on the cake.

While the "Harry Potter" films kept getting darker in tone and light (Bruno Delbonnel's Oscar-nominated cinematography really turned the lights down for this film), there are still moments of joyful magic scattered all over the place.
At this Christmassy moment, a little snowman is ice skating (ice skating ?!) on a Christmas cake while Harry, Lupine, Tonks and the Weasleys celebrate Christmas in the Burrow.
