First Trip To Hogsmeade

We are going on our first trip to Hogsmeade this week. The headmistress has allowed even us first years to go. Since we are participating in the swap, we need to go buy stuff. But the place I am looking forward to visiting the most is Honeyduke's Sweet Shop. As a muggle, all of these new and exciting and magical candies are amazing. I can't wait. Maybe I'll pick up a little something for my swap partner
