  1. The Mardi Gras has finished and it is lucky that all partygoers were given a magical bag of holding. It has an extension charm placed on it, so that it can hold as many items as possible. What did you get at Mardi Gras? How many beads did you catch? Have you taken any photos? Maybe got a souvenir or two? Did you squirrel away any food to be shared around the fireplace? You can show your haul in two ways. You can make a graphical representation (600x600 pixels or less, please) of your haul in any medium and within HOL rules. While you can borrow pictures from the internet, the final product must be of your own creation. You can also describe it in at least 80 words. Post your haul below by 11:59pm HOL-time on 29th February to earn 10 rubies.

  3. Puzzle by Lorainia Riverrider, text by Prof. Sky Alton Did you realise we’re in the presence of royalty? Many krewes appoint a court to feature in the parades, consisting of a king, a queen and potentially other nobles and/or attendants. These people are usually krewe members but celebrities have been chosen in the past. To celebrate the king of the carnival, solve the following spot the difference puzzle. You’ll earn 1 ruby per difference spotted (for a total of 10). Send your solution to Prof. Maxim Trevelyan via PM by 23:59 HOL-time on the 29th of February!

  7. Being a magizoologist is not just looking at brilliant magical creatures and feeding them. Their job is also to raise awareness about many aspects of magical creatures that still roam among us. For example, our very subject of this month's Light Reading, Newt Scamander once saved the wizarding world's last pair of Graphorns from extinction. Our focus this time, however, are Golden Snidgets. They have become very endangered because they used to be used in Quidditch before the snitch was invented. When they were caught, they got squished. Their use was later forbidden due to no small amount of effort by Modesty Rabnott who got a Snidget Reservation named after her. To raise awareness in the wizarding community about these endangered creatures, please design a window sticker that witches and wizards could put on their dwellings. The sticker needs to have a good mix of pictures and text, but it also needs to catch attention! Post your window stickers below (keep them 600x600 or less) by February 29th 11:59 pm HOL time to get 10 beans.
  8. One of the wizarding world's most majestic creatures (and one most students are very eager to learn about when they first open Fantastic Beasts) is undoubtedly the unicorn. Even Muggles' stories often feature them! They are incredibly fast and hard to catch, but give the most potent of magical ingredients in either wand or potion-making. Unfortunately, being a popular page, the illustration in the copy belonging to the Hogwarts Library has become damaged (we think someone may have spilled a potion on it). Can you help us restore it? Put together the illustration, found here and post the completed picture below. Do that by February 29th 11:59 pm HOL time to get 10 rubies. Make sure that the time and number of pieces (99) is visible on the submission. The submission also needs to be max 600x600 pixels in size.
  9. Puzzle by Lorainia Riverrider, text by Prof. Sky Alton Masks are an essential part of Mardi Gras. In fact, in New Orleans, it’s illegal for anyone riding on a float not to wear one! As well as bringing an exciting mystery to the party, masks historically levelled the playing field. They let everyone go where they wanted and party with whoever they wanted, regardless of who they were or what class they were from. While thankfully that’s not as much of a concern these days, masks are still a fun tradition that we should take full advantage of while we’re here. Prepare yourself a Mardi Gras mask by solving this Nonogram puzzle. Each puzzle consists of a blank grid with colored clues on the left of every row and on the top of every column. The object is to reveal a hidden picture by painting blocks in each row and column so their length, color and sequence corresponds to the clues, and there is at least one empty square between adjacent same-color blocks. It is allowed to have no empty square between adjacent different-color blocks. To earn 10 rubies, please send your solution to me, Prof. Maxim Trevelyan, by the 29th of February at 23:59 HOL-time!
  10. One of the famous Muggle philosophers said that 'knowledge is power'. In order to seamlessly blend into Muggle culture, you do not only need an appropriate dress for the occasion, but you also need to know certain things about the situation you are walking into. To ready yourselves for the trip, please answer the trivia about Mardi Gras below. Each correct answer is worth one ruby. If you get them all correct, that will net you 10 rubies! 1. What does Mardi Gras translate to in English? 2. What do purple, gold and green signify during Mardi Gras? 3. Where was the first Mardi Gras parade in the United States? 4. When were floats first introduced to New Orleans Mardi Gras parades? 5. King cake is typically made with what type of dough? 6. What is usually hidden in Louisiana version of King cake? 7. What traditional phrase should you say if you want to get beads during Mardi Gras (be exact)? 8. Mardi Gras beads used to be made of what material? 9. Special coins thrown during Mardi Gras parades are called what? 10. What are the groups that organize New Orleans Mardi Gras parades called? Please send your answers to me, Prof. Maxim Trevelyan, via private message by the 29th of February at 11:59 pm HOL-time!
  11. Welcome students to this year's Muggle Studies class trip! I have been talking with Prof. Alton about the class trip for this year. She shot down nearly all my ideas! Safari is too dangerous (something about student-hungry hippos?), space too unattainable and caves too dark (though she was nearly persuaded by the promise of me bringing back shiny things for her office). So, I thought, why not a Muggle party? Weeks-long Muggle party at that. With February drawing near, it was a perfect time to visit Mardi Gras in New Orleans. For those who have had little contact with the Muggle world, some quick information about what Mardi Gras is. Mardi Gras is a Muggle festival rooted in centuries-old traditions and unfolds annually in the heart of New Orleans, a city teeming with rich history and culture. As part of our learning experience, we invite you to step into the bustling streets where Muggles converge to revel in the spirit of celebration, marked by dazzling parades, vibrant costumes, rhythmic music that echoes through the historic French Quarter, delectable cuisine, and partake in the lively dances that make this celebration so famous. There will be twelve tasks offered during this activity, with three being published every week. Each task will be worth 10 rubies and people who complete all tasks will get an extra 20 rubies. That is 140 rubies in total! Timeline February 1: Week One posted February 8: Week Two posted February 15: Week Three posted February 22: Week Four posted February 29: everything due If you have difficulty completing a particular task for accessibility reasons, please reach out and we can discuss an alternative.
  12. If you have any questions about the activity, you can ask them here to send me a private message.
