It was a quiet night at the beginning of December when the Grinch attacked the Common Room. We never saw it coming. The next morning, suddenly all the Christmas decorations were vanished. Here and there, we could find traces of destruction.
In the beginning, we were suspicious of one of the other houses, because you never know who would like to terrorize Gryffindor. It soon became clear though that it was an inside job. Who else could come in the Common Room without anyone noticing?
Of course, the Gryffindor detective team looked into possible outside suspects: Prof. Tarma Black, Head Girl Amy Lupin, or even Fumei Shirokuro’s colour twin Prof. Opal Curare. In the end, it seemed like none of them were responsible.
So all three houses were in the clear, which meant it was an inside job. But who would want to keep Gryffindor from having a Christmas? Surely there isn’t anyone in Gryffindor who is a Grinch? Let’s keep this thought in our mind for a while.
If it wasn’t for the amazing Guinevere Avalon, Arabella Calandra, and Ciara Black, we at the Gryffindor Tower wouldn’t have been able to celebrate Christmas (and we would probably have stormed the other Common Rooms, just to be able to celebrate Christmas). These three Gryffindors brought back Christmas and were able to apprehend the Grinch.
The Grinch is now locked away, writing notes that she’s extremely sorry. The notes, however, look more like some weird story of what happened. Let's not cut the bushes and just think about this: because Fumei took away Christmas from the Tower, everyone was able to have lots of fun with decorating the Gryffindor Tower for a second time. Everyone should be grateful to this lunatic!
