Harry lit the lanterns with a flick of a finger and watched as they rose into the air.
"It is traditional to make Yule wishes on the lanterns," Severus said. "As they rise, Lady Magic gathers them together to read the wishes. She then grants those she thinks are worthy."
"What a lovely tradition!" Harry said.
"What would you wish for?"
"I have everything I need right here!"
Severus drew Harry close, placing an arm about his shoulder as they watched the lanterns rise into the night sky.
As the lanterns burned out, Harry leaned closer for a soft kiss.
