Although the Yule Ball is a tradition of the Triwizard Tournament, the 1974 Yule Ball was held without the Tournament. It was a formal dance held on the evening of Christmas Day. At Hogwarts, where the Yule Ball was held in 1974, only students of fourth year or above were permitted to attend, though younger students could also go if an older student invited them to accompany them. The ball began at 8:00 p.m. and ended at midnight.
