Albus ~ His Portrait at Hogwarts ~ Complete

And days of auld lang syne
Sunday, December 31st ~ Approaching Midnight

Albus straightened his beard, patting it into shape carefully. He needed to be three floors down and two wings over before the stroke of midnight when the perpetually new born babe from the portrait of "Mother and child" near the Muggle Studies classroom was brought in swathed in his festive "New Year" ribbon.

Albus' own carefully lettered sash was draped across one shoulder, the beard arranged so as to not hide the "2006".

It was quite the honor to be chosen to represent the old year, an honor Phineas Nigellus had been given up until the year that Albus' portrait first graced the wall of the Headmistress. "Shove that in your cauldron and boil it, Phinny."

He took a moment to look around the dark and silent office. Tomorrow was the start of a brand new year, and Albus could only hope it would be full of peace and prosperity for all those in his heart.

"And ther's a hand, my trusty friend,
And gie's a hand o' thine;
We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne."
