Awww; this is so sweet and just really lovely!

Most of the fics I've read about James and Lily (post-Hogwarts) have been about the night they died, so this was a very refreshing! It's just a perfect little moment out of Lily and James' short time with Harry, and the "normalcy" of it (for lack of a better word), really helped me to connect with it.

The thing that stood out to me the most was James' characterization. I love, love, LOVE that, even though he's a grown man and a father now, he's still a tiny bit immature. That's just SO realistic and just classic James (at least in my head-canon, that is :P).

The line "James had never been to a carol service before" was a nice touch; great attention to detail, there! But my favorite line of the whole thing was, "Have we had enough proper Christmas yet?"! I laughed out loud when I read that!

I really don't know why, but I got really wary for some reason when Bathilda showed up. (Probably because the last thing I remember about her was DH - and we ALL know how scary that turned out!) As I kept reading, though, I thought it was really nice to see her um... pre-snake?

Okay, enough about the snake! :P This really is just adorable and lovely, and perfectly written! Amazing piece! 10/10!

Holiday Review Extravaganza Event Two.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked it. I don't see a lot of Lily/James stories set at this point in their lives, but it's an interesting time to me because they're really still so young and their happiness as young parents was just so brief. That makes me super sad, and I process sad HP feelings by writing drabbles like this ;)

He's definitely still immature I think, he's only 21 here. Still very young. I loved giving Bathilda a cameo as her real self, though I wasn't sure how to write her since the only thing we see of her in the books that's really her is Lily's brief mention in the letter to Sirius.

Thank you again, and thanks for the review! Happy review holiday!
