The Yule Ball takes place and Christmas Eve night and not on Christmas Day i have changed this on the Article Page--Hogwarts09 09:01, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

In behind the scenes it sayes in the text that Yule may come from the Sweden or Denmark, any idea why she named it like Swedish? And why not Christmas. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Dumbledore's date

Dumbledore's dance partner was McGonagall, not Sprout, wasn't it? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 01:44, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

In the movie, his dance parter was Minerva McGonagall. In the novel, he had several dance partners : Olympe Maxime and Pomona Sprout. I don't think adults had really dates for the Yule Ball, they just danced together.((so it's possible he danced too with Minerva)). Moody for example danced with Aurora Sinistra. --{{SUBST:Utilisateur:Famini71/autosig}} 09:15, January 6, 2010 (UTC) Famini71


Since it was on Christmas Eve, were you forced to go, or was it optional to go so could you go home for the 2 week christmas holidays. I know thats what i would have done —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Helgen (talkcontribs).

It was optional. The book states that more students than usual stayed at Hogwarts over Christmas than usual, but not all. Also, first to third years were not allowed to take part, unless invited by older students.--Rodolphus (talk) 21:37, December 29, 2013 (UTC)
