"Another instalment of adventure from Gilderoy Lockhart."
—Description[src]

Holidays with Hags was a book written by Gilderoy Lockhart, one of his collected works. The book was a required textbook during the 1992–1993 school year at Hogwarts School, one of seven along with Break with a Banshee, Gadding with Ghouls, Travels with Trolls, Voyages with Vampires, Wanderings with Werewolves and Year with the Yeti.[1]

History

Like most of his other books, it apparently concerned his supposed experiences with magical creatures, in this case hags, though Lockhart later admitted that he was merely taking credit for the achievements of other wizards.[2] Most likely erasing that wizards memory with a Memory Charm.

There was a picture in this book of a hag that Harry Potter found similar in appearance to Millicent Bulstrode.[3]
