Just to put everyone straight on the misleading media reports of ‘Twelve New Stories for Christmas’. As true Potter fans worked out straight away, our 12 days of festive surprises and accompanying rhyming riddles refer to new potions and Moments in addition to several new entries by J.K. Rowling that will be posted on pottermore.com between 12th and 23rd December. Sorry to disappoint fans, but there will not be a set of 12 new short stories, one for each day of Christmas. Even Pottermore wouldn't be that generous.

J.K. Rowling will release 12 Harry Potter short stories this month
This year has been one of surprises from J.K. Rowling, and the Harry Potter author is closing 2014 out in a similar way. On Friday, the author announced, via an email to Pottermore users, a series of 12 short stories from her wizarding world to commemorate the 12 days of Christmas. Starting December 12, new instalments will be posted at 8 a.m. ET. and will involve “wonderful writing by J.K. Rowling in Moments from Half-Blood Prince, shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two.”
Rowling says at least one of the stories will focus on Potter’s rival, Draco Malfoy. Back on Halloween, Rowling wrote 5,000 words for Pottermore about another auxiliary Potter character, Dolores Umbridge.
