Harry Potter

About 3-4 years ago I discovered the most amazing books and movies in the whole wide world, and those are Harry Potter. There is 7 books and 8 movies and I love every single one of them. They are about this boy named Harry and he discovers that he is a wizard and it’s basically the story of his life at Hogwarts (a school for wizards). There he battles against other wizards, dragons, plays quidditch, and makes some potions. He does it all with his loyal, caring, and best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. If you have not read the books or seen the movies I would recommend that you start with the books, they’re so amazing. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE start with the first book or movie because if you don’t it’s just gonna be a huge disaster and you’re not gonna understand anything and you’re gonna hate it. Trust me, that happened to my cousin and some of my friends, and don’t skip any!!! They are all very important. Those books/movies are so amazing, I’ve never read/seen anything like that, they are so original and such a unique story, after you read the books or see the movies you’re gonna want to be a wizard, it’s just so magical and fun. That’s a completely different world. The first Harry potter book (Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone) was first published in June 26, 1997 and the first movie was released in November 14, 2001. The last Harry Potter (Harry Potter and the deathly hallows) book was published in July 21, 2007 and the last movie part 1 was released in November 19, 2010 and part 2 in July 11, 2011 in New York city. You honestly need to read the books or see the movies (I would recommend you read the books first).

A Christmas Carol

By: Luke

    One of the best books in England and a very popular books during this time of year comes from Charles Dickens. He wrote A Christmas Carol. It begins with a man named Ebenezer Scrooge not having the Christmas spirit and acting maliciously towards everyone, including loved ones. One night something pays him a visit. Ebenezer wakes up the week before Christmas day, then as he is sitting down, a spirit appears. It is his old friend Marley who he work for but now Ebenezer owns the store. Then Marley says, “YOU WILL BE HAUNTED BY THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS “.Then the spirit left and an hour later another spirit appears and says in a haunting voice, “I’m  the ghost of Christmas past”. She takes him to the place where he was a boy. She shows him how he became bad, but Scrooge still does not change his mind. The next spirit appears and says, ‘’I’m the ghost of christmas present”. The ghost takes Scrooge to show him that the son of his nephew will die the next day from medical ailments. Scrooge is a little worried and says he might change his ways.The next spirit is the ghost of the future. He does not talk but points to Scrooge’s future if he does not change his ways. The ghost of the future shows Scrooge that he will die and people forgot about him. Scrooge asks the spirit to forgive them but they are still mad and he is scared of what could happen. As Scrooge wakes up on the morning of Christmas, he goes to apologize to his nephew and tries to right all the mistakes he has made. We can all learn something from Scrooge about respecting everyone and asking for forgiveness. This holiday season, I challenge you to love your family, friends, and everyone around you a little more.
