A/N: ♥ Happy New Year! ♥

Laurel hummed as she pulled on her pretty new jumper and smoothed the matching skirt. They weren't orange, but the red and white were Winter Solstice colors. Gathering her cloak and hat, Laurel went to the sitting room where everyone was waiting.

"Do you have the basket, my little princess?" Papa asked and Laurel nodded.

Sevvy held her hand as they walked to the edge of the Forbidden Forest, Daddy and Papa carrying their brothers. Auntie Minerva and Poppy were there with the others who'd come to celebrate Yule.

As the offerings were made, unicorns and centaurs gathered to watch.

Ash stood very still as the unicorn foal sniffed at the apple in his hand. Lulu stood by him, smiling as the foal snatched the treat and bumped his hand with its nose. Grinning, Ash watched it trot back to its mother, golden horn gleaming in the last rays of the sun.

"Come on, Ash!" Lulu called as she headed towards the others.

Ash ran to catch up, not seeing Hagrid until he bumped into him.

"Watcher, Ash!" Hagrid lifted him up into his arms. "Happy Holidays to you!"

"It's the solstice, Hagrid!" Ash giggled.

"It sure is, little one."

Severus strolled the corridors, more from old habit than from any true need. Not many students had stayed at Hogwarts for the holidays this year, so he didn't expect any trouble. Minerva was leaving in the morning to spend Christmas Eve with her family and wouldn't return until New Year's Eve.

Pushing open the portrait that guarded his rooms, Severus found Harry wrapping presents in front of the fire. His lips twitched upwards as Severus listened to Harry hum while he curled a ribbon by twirling his wand.

"You sound content, my heart." Severus sat beside him.

"I am, beloved."

Jacien woke up coughing and scowled into the darkness. It was too early to get up, even if it was Christmas Eve. He sneezed, groaning because it hurt his head. Crawling out of bed, Jacien tiptoed into Lulu's room. His sister'd make him feel better, Jacien knew, as he climbed in next to her.

"Jace? What's the matter?" Lulu asked sleepily.

"Head hurts," Jacien cuddled close and Lulu put her hand on his head, making his head better immediately.

Jacien was glad Daddy'd help him get Lulu a soft orange jumper for Christmas.

"T'anks; love you."

"I love you, too."

Something woke Harry from a sound sleep. He sat up and checked that Severus was still sleeping, before sliding out of bed. Sevvy was fine, as was Ash, but Jace wasn't in his bed. Harry wasn't surprised to see him snuggled with Laurel. Laying his hand on Jace's forehead, Harry thought it felt a little warm.


Harry bent down and kissed Laurel's forehead, finding it blessedly cool. "Go back to sleep, love."

"Jace didn't feel good, but I fixed him."

Stifling a groan, Harry sighed. Sick kids for Christmas – happy holidays to me.

Just then, Harry heard Severus sneeze.

Sevvy hummed as he prepared the ingredients for the Pepperup Potion for Papa. Lulu had checked everyone and made sure they weren't sick, even though Dad didn't like it. Auntie Poppy said she'd need the potion if everyone got sick. For Sevvy, it was the perfect way to spend Christmas Eve afternoon with his father.

"Are you ready for Christmas, Severus?"

"Yes, Papa! I can't wait to see Jace and Ash open their presents!" Sevvy smiled, knowing how excited his brothers would be. "I hope Dad likes my present."

Papa smiled. "I'm sure Dad will love the new flying cloak."

Harry left the boys bedroom door ajar, thankful everyone was finally asleep, despite the anticipation of a visit from Father Christmas. In the sitting room, he found Severus nibbling on one of the cookies Laurel and Ash had set out.

"You going to drink the milk as well?" Harry asked, smiling.

Severus tapped the glass with his wand and Banished it to the kitchen. "No reason to waste it." He held out his hand to Harry.

Harry took it, allowing himself to be tugged down next to the Christmas tree.

"Now," Severus purred, "I think it's time for another tradition."

Severus snapped his hips forward, thrusting slow and hard. The empty cookie plate rattled on the table as Harry's shoulder brushed against it. Groaning, Harry threw his head back, his muscles clenching around Severus as warmth spread between them.

"Fuck, Harry!" Severus ground out as his control snapped and he plunged deep, filling Harry with his release.

Slumping to one side, Severus cast a Cleaning Spell as he gathered Harry against his chest. The clock tower chimed midnight and Severus gave Harry a lingering kiss.

"Happy Christmas, my heart."

Harry smiled at him, cupping his cheek. "Happy Christmas, my love."

Love Lulu wearing solstice colors even if they aren't orange.
Lulu cures everyone despite her dads.
Lulu is a force to be reckoned with, I'm afraid! Sounds like she got Grandma Lily's stubbornness!
