    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 JK Rowling that will be posted on pottermore.com between 12th and 23rd December," the announcement read. "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."
