A distraction, watching Mrs. Weasley force Charlie
into a chair, raise her wand threateningly, and announce that he was about to
get a proper haircut.
As Harry’s birthday dinner would have stretched the Burrow’s kitchen to
breaking point even before the arrival of Charlie, Lupin, Tonks, and Hagrid,
several tables were placed end to end in the garden. Fred and George bewitched
a number of purple lanterns, all emblazoned with a large number 17,
to hang in midair over the guests..Before remembering his promise to Ron and hurriedly striking up a conversation
