Trivia: Did you know… that author J.K Rowling and Harry have something in common? Rowling gave her main character her own birthday: July 31st!

Harry Potter has been making kids, teens and adults alike crazy for magic and wizardry for the last 20 years. With over 450 million copies sold, Harry Potter stands as the bestselling book series of all time. The original series captivated audiences and featured 7 books and 8 movies; fans are now enjoying a new series, Fantastic Beasts.

Harry Potter truly captured our muggle hearts with its magic. It brought us into a world of fantasy, enchantment and mystery. The series also showed us the beauty of difference with its 4 different houses. It taught us to embrace our smarts (Ravenclaw), our bravery (Gryffindor), our ambition (Slytherin) and our Loyalty (Hufflepuff). The entirety of Hogwarts and the wizarding world was enticing to us muggles as it was so different from our ordinary lives. However, not all of Harry Potter was positive. It also brought us into a world of murder, misery and darkness.

 

The Death Eaters and Voldemort were prime examples of this. Wanting to take over the world and only allow pure bloods to live. It was a clash of good versus evil, high class versus ordinary, Harry Potter the good versus Voldemort the evil. One clash that the main characters of Harry Potter had to struggle through and fight.
