You can watch back-to-back Harry Potter movies on Thanksgiving

There’s a lot to be thankful for this year. Your friends, your family….the fact that back-to-back Harry Potter movies are going to be playing on Thanksgiving. You know, the basics. Here’s how you can catch up with your Hogwarts pals while nursing a turkey (and, let’s face it, wine) induced hangover.

You can kick off all the ~magical~ HP festivities by tuning into SyFy on Wednesday night at 11pm EST. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone will be playing, which is the perfect amuse bouche before an evening filled with cranberry sauce, stuffing, and all the pumpkin pie. Hagrid will probably be joining you for the dessert portion of the night.

On the actual day of Thanksgiving, you’re going to have to wake up real early to catch Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, but that’s okay because you’re a strong-willed Muggle and can handle stuff like that.

The complete schedule below:

  • 2:31 a.m. EST, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • 6:25 a.m. EST, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  • 9:25 a.m. EST, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • 12:54 p.m. EST, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  • 3:56 p.m. EST, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  • 7:25 p.m. EST, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
  • 10:38 p.m. EST, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Will your family be so distracted by all the drama in the Forbidden Forrest that they might forget that it’s Thanksgiving and there’s an entire feast in front of them? Probably. More food for us.

While we’re on the topic of Harry Potter, we’d like to remind fans everywhere that they can celebrate even more holidays with their favorite wizard crew. Coming up this Christmas, you can actually dine at the real-life Hogwarts in England. There will be a massive feast in the Great Hall, drinks and dancing, dessert at Platform 9 and 3/4, AND the entire castle will be covered in snow.

Be still my bursting heart. Must go buy a Yule Ball outfit immediately.
