A Magical Christmas of Magic is a wizard rock compilation album released in 2005.

"This is a Holiday CD that we [Harry and the Potters] put together in 2005. It’s basically the first wizard rock compilation! It’s got seasonal songs from some of our closest friends and enemies in the wizarding world. It features the first recorded appearances of both Draco and the Malfoys and the Whomping Willows! It was recorded in various places by various wizards and is totally awesome. This was released in relatively limited fashion in December 2005. The lovely artwork was done by our friend Dave Roman."[2]

Many of the "bands" featured on the album are alternate personae of the DeGeorge brothers, including "Dumbledore" (a "wiz-hop" side project)[3] and "The Gringotts Goblin Choir". "Cousin Wizardface" is a pseudonym for Uncle Monsterface.[4]

Reception

"This is one of the purest, most sincere expressions of holiday cheer in musical form I have come across in quite some time. ... Also, it’s a very interesting piece of wizard rock’s history as it contains a lot of firsts, and is a first itself (first holiday wrock comp album, first wrock comp album, etc.)."[3]
