Author: Lady B

Summary: Draco and Severus knew that Harry never had an ideal Christmas, growing up with The Dursleys. They were determined to give him the best Christmas ever – the muggle way. No one told Draco it would be so hard!

Author's Note: I sat here the last few weeks thinking of what I was going to write for my annual HP-themed Christmas fic and this popped into my head. This will mostly be a series of song-fic drabbles to the tune of "The 12 Pains of Christmas" by The Bob Rivers Comedy Troupe. The chapters are short (ridiculously short!) and this story is complete. I will post one chapter a day until Christmas.

Disclaimer: All recognizable characters and plots from the Harry Potterverse belong to JK Rowling and various publishing companies and movie studios. "The 12 Pains Of Christmas" is written by Bob Rivers and I do not claim the rights to this song. I am not making any money from this, I am simply doing this for the fun of it. Any plot devices and original characters belong to me alone and are simply a figment of my imagination.

They had been wandering the lot of trees for what seemed like hours.

"Severus, I'm freezing! Why can't I use a heating charm?" Draco complained for the thousandth time. Severus had to clamp down on the urge to hex him.

"Because we promised Harry we wouldn't." Severus growled.

"This sucks." Draco whined.

"Don't be childish." Severus sighed, rolling his eyes when he caught Draco sticking his tongue out.

Harry ran toward them, eyes sparkling, face flushed with the cold and excitement.

"I found it!" he grinned, grabbing Draco's hand.

"S'about bloody time." Draco muttered. Severus could only shake his head as he followed his partners...
