  9. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Chapter 18 (Dobby's Reward) - "Harry had been to several Hogwarts feasts, but never one quite like this. [...] Hagrid turning up at half past three [...] Professor McGonagall standing up to tell them all that the exams had been canceled as a school treat."
  10. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 18 (Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs) - "The rest of the final term passed in a haze of blazing sunshine. Hogwarts was back to normal with only a few, small differences — Defense Against the Dark Arts classes were canceled (“but we’ve had plenty of practice at that anyway,” Ron told a disgruntled Hermione) and Lucius Malfoy had been sacked as a school governor."
  11. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 18 (Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs) - "I can’t stand another two months with only Dudley to talk to. ...”"
  12. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 1 (Owl Post) - "Harry was particularly keen to avoid trouble with his aunt and uncle at the moment, as they were already in an especially bad mood with him, all because he’d received a telephone call from a fellow wizard one week into the school vacation."
  13. {POA|B|1}} - So Harry had had no word from any of his wizarding friends for five long weeks, and this summer was turning out to be almost as bad as the last one." Noted on 30 July 1993
  14. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 1 (Owl Post)
  15. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 3 (The Knight Bus)
  16. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 1 (Owl Post) - "I bought your present by owl-order; there was an advertisement in the Daily Prophet (I’ve been getting it delivered; it’s so good to keep up with what’s going on in the wizarding world). Did you see that picture of Ron and his family a week ago?
  17. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 1 (Owl Post) - "It was nearly midnight, and he was lying on his stomach in bed, the blankets drawn right over his head like a tent, a flashlight in one hand and a large leather-bound book (A History of Magic by Bathilda Bagshot) propped open against the pillow."
  18. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 8 (Flight of the Fat Lady)
  19. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 2 (Aunt Marge's Big Mistake)
  20. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 2 (Aunt Marge's Big Mistake) - "Uncle Vernon drained his teacup, glanced at his watch, and added, “I’d better be off in a minute, Petunia. Marge’s train gets in at ten.” [...] “Marge’ll be here for a week,” Uncle Vernon snarled..."
  21. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 2 (Aunt Marge's Big Mistake) - "“You mustn’t blame yourself for the way the boy’s turned out, Vernon,” she said over lunch on the third day. [...] At that moment, the wineglass Aunt Marge was holding exploded in her hand." Her first day was 31 July.
  22. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 2 (Aunt Marge's Big Mistake) - Following the third day (2 August), "Harry got through the next three days by forcing himself to think about his Handbook of Do-It-Yourself Broomcare whenever Aunt Marge started on him. [...] At last, at long last, the final evening of Marge’s stay arrived." This could be the evening of the sixth day, with Marge's last day of her week-long stay the following day, or the evening of her last day of visiting. As there were several bottles of wine and Brandy being consumed, it appears unlikely she was leaving later that evening so more likely 5 August if Marge's stay is exactly 7 days (31 July - 6 August).
  23. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 3 (The Knight Bus) - The sky was getting a little lighter. He would lie low for a couple of hours, go to Gringotts the moment it opened, then set off — where, he didn’t know. [...] he had walked right into Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic himself. [...] “So all that remains,” said Fudge, now buttering himself a second crumpet, “is to decide where you’re going to spend the last three weeks of your vacation. I suggest you take a room here at the Leaky Cauldron and —” [...] “Room eleven’s free, Harry,” said Fudge.
  24. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter B , page 11 - "Meanwhile, in the rest of the castle, the usual magnificent Christmas decorations had been put up."
  25. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 11 (The Firebolt)
  26. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 11 (The Firebolt) - "At lunchtime they went down to the Great Hall, to find that the House tables had been moved against the walls again, and that a single table, set for twelve, stood in the middle of the room. Professors Dumbledore, McGonagall, Snape, Sprout, and Flitwick were there, along with Filch, the caretaker, who had taken off his usual brown coat and was wearing a very old and rather moldy-looking tailcoat. There were only three other students, two extremely nervous-looking first years and a sullen-faced Slytherin fifth year."
  27. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 11 (The Firebolt) - "“I’m afraid the poor fellow is ill again,” said Dumbledore, indicating that everybody should start serving themselves. “Most unfortunate that it should happen on Christmas Day.”"
  28. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 12 (The Patronus) - "Hermione, who remained convinced that she had acted for the best, started avoiding the common room. Harry and Ron supposed she had taken refuge in the library and didn’t try to persuade her to come back. All in all, they were glad when the rest of the school returned shortly after New Year, and Gryffindor Tower became crowded and noisy again."
  29. According to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 7 (The Slug Club), Romilda Vane was part of "a group of fourth-year girls" in the 1996-1997 school year. This meant that she could only have stared Hogwarts in the 1993-1994 school year
