This Christmas promises to be magical as RTÉ2 are airing all eight Harry Potter movies starting from Christmas Eve.
Though they’re not in the same realm as classics like It’s a Wonderful Life or Die Hard, a mini-marathon of Potter is something the whole family can enjoy.
A touch of the Hogwarts magic that always has a festive feel to it might be just the thing to drag the kids away from their phones and into the one room this Christmas.
It starts on Monday with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone followed up on Christmas Day with The Chamber of Secrets.
After that RTÉ2 will be airing them two a day back to back from St. Stphen’s Day through to December 28.
