Yule Ball

The Yule Ball was a formal Christmas dance put on by Hogwarts as a part of the 1994 Triwizard Tournament. Held on Christmas day, the ball required formal dress and for the Triwizard Champions, an extravagant entry and formal dance with a partner. Food was magically summoned on to plates, and the popular band, The Weird Sisters, provided the entertainment. Hermione Granger accepted Viktor Krum's invitation to be his partner whilst Ron Weasley and Harry Potter, in a state of panic, invited Padma and Parvati Patil - both of whom eventually regretted their decision to attend with the boys, as they were a little bit preoccupied throughout the evening.
