PG13 for languageSummary:
Draco and Severus knew that Harry never had an ideal Christmas, growing up with The Dursleys. They were determined to give him the best Christmas ever – the muggle way. No one told Draco it would be so hard!Author's Note:
I sat here the last few weeks thinking of what I was going to write for my annual HP-themed Christmas fic and this popped into my head. This will most be a series of song-fic drabbles to the tune of "The 12 Pains of Christmas" by The Bob Rivers Comedy Troupe.Disclaimer:
All recognizable characters and plots from the Harry Potterverse belong to JK Rowling and various publishing companies and movie studios. "The 12 Pains Of Christmas" is written by Bob Rivers and I do not claim the rights to this song. I am not making any money from this, I am simply doing this for the fun of it. Any plot devices and original characters belong to me alone and are simply a figment of my imagination.Song Links:

They had been wandering the lot of trees for what seemed like hours.
"Severus, I'm freezing! Why can't I use a heating charm?" Draco complained for the thousandth time. Severus had to clamp down on the urge to hex him.
"Because we promised Harry we wouldn't." Severus growled.
"This sucks." Draco whined.
"Don't be childish." Severus sighed, rolling his eyes when he caught Draco sticking his tongue out.
Harry ran toward them, eyes sparkling, face flushed with the cold and excitement.
"I found it!" he grinned, grabbing Draco's hand.
"S'about bloody time." Draco muttered. Severus could only shake his head as he followed his partners...
- - -The second thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me: Rigging up the lights...
"Why the hell aren't these lights blinking?" Draco complained later that evening. Severus felt his inner temperature go for mildly annoyed to slow-simmering rage.
"The flasher light is blown, hang on a minute." Harry stated, digging through a packet of spare bulbs he'd purchased. He quickly located the darkened bulb and changed it, grinning with delight when the lights began their twinkling right away. "I'm going to check on the popcorn. Think you can handle those lights?"
"Got it covered. How hard can it be?" Draco replied. Harry kissed Draco's cheek as he got to his feet, rubbing Severus's shoulder as he passed on his way to the kitchen.
"Draco you don't know what you're doing, do you?" Severus asked once Harry was out of earshot. Draco pulled out his wand.
"Easy as pie." Draco smirked.
"You promised." Severus reminded him.
"I hate muggles." Draco grumbled, stashing his wand away...
When Harry returned to the living room, he nearly bit his tongue in half to prevent himself from laughing at the sight he was now witness to.
Draco had tried hanging the lights on the tree and had gotten himself tangled up in the cords.
Severus, stoic man that he was famous for being, had no such qualms and was practically laying on the floor with laughter.
With a flick of his hand, Harry freed his lover, a small smile on his face.
"Fine! You're so bloody smart, you put up these lights!" Draco growled at Severus before storming away.
"Severus!" Harry sighed.
"I'll get him." he chuckled, wiping tears of mirth from his eyes. Harry laughed and went back into the kitchen, knowing Severus would calm Draco down...The third and fourth things coming next time...
