Harry's First Christmas and Other Tales is a collection of holiday-themed short stories by G. Norman Lippert, released online in 2008. It consist of three stories that were written for the members of the Grotto Keep Forum (a now defunct James Potter fan-site), and their support of The stories were released exclusively on the Harry's First Christmas website. However, this site is no longer active.

The three stories were written to act as supplements to the James Potter series as of the time of the second book. However, "Harry's First Christmas" (as noted by the title) takes place during the holiday before Voldemort's attack on Harry Potter's home in Godric's Hollow. Thus, making it a supplement to Harry Potter as it has almost nothing to do with the events of the James Potter series. The three stories (in chronological order) are as follows:

  • Merlin's Gift: A Founders Christmas Story[1]
  • Harry's First Christmas: A Marauder's Christmas Story[2]
  • Petra's Getaway: A James Potter Christmas Story[3]
