Host a Harry Potter Movie Marathon

With the imminent release of the final film instalment in the Harry Potter saga, now is the time to get together with a group of avid (or reluctant) Hogwarts lovers and relive the magic of the young wizard's tale.

Before you start though, there are a few things that need to be considered, given that it will take around seventeen hours to get through Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part I.

First of all, you'd best give thought to the basic needs of your guests. Provide cushions and blankets and regular stretching breaks, lest someone end up developing something akin to Deep Vein Thrombosis.

You'll also need food and drinks. Of course, the ideal snacks would include Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans and Butterbeer, but if these aren't readily available, try some of the following:

Pumpkin Pasties
Add some diced pumpkin to a basic vegetable pastie recipe.

Chocolate Frogs
The regular kind will do if there are no enchanted leaping ones to be had.

Jelly Lollies
Best to avoid Puking Pastilles for the night, even if you do have a stash of them somewhere.

If everyone is still awake and lucid at the end of the marathon you'll at least be ready for a change of location, so you can pop on down to the local cinema and catch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, due for release July 15, 2011.

Why? An enchanted night in with friends.
When: Anytime.
Where: Your house.
Cost: Free or the cost of DVD hire.
Thanks, well written, interesting and 17 hours of Harry Potter. Umm, I could cope with it over a few sessions, but Im not sure I could take them all in in one sitting.
