Friday Five: August 2003 Archives

Flipping MT. Just lost a whole paragraph because when you hit back by accident, you can't go forward and get back what you were typing >:(

Was just commenting on the wierdness of Christmas in the Harry Potter world. I've always found it quite strange that the world of Harry Potter celebrates Christmas and Easter. The whole "Christian" and "magic" world are so totally opposite, you couldn't have them both at the same time. Wizards would be just as anti-christian as Christians are anti wizards. Why would wizards celebrate a holiday that wouldn't even exist without Christ? If there was such a thing as a magic world, Christianity wouldn't actually exist. I just find it really odd.
