Happy Birthday Harry Potter #HarryPotter

It's a great day for Harry Potter fans! Not only is today Harry Potter's birthday, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is also out! From last night's midnight releases, to Freeform airing a weekend of Harry Potter movies, to celebrating one of the most beloved children's book characters, fans of Harry Potter have plenty of reasons celebrate! 

One of the things I love about this year, is the fact I get to enjoy the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child through my kids's eyes. They are huge fans of the series. The HP series first came out when I was in college, so I didn't experience the craze of Harry Potter midnight releases. While we didn't get to attend on last night, we still had a lot of fun. We prepped last week by picking up a few Harry Potter games, Clue and Trivial Pursuit. Both of which are at Barnes and Noble, and can be purchased with a discount if you have a B&N membership, as well as coupons. 

For all the old HP fans, be sure to dust off your HP costumes, get your HP books out, pull out your HP decor, and gather together with fellow HP fans to celebrate HP weekend! Don't forget to follow up your Harry Potter read-athons with a Harry Potter movie-a-thon (being aired on Freeform)! This is the perfect weekend to use HP as an excuse to cancel all your plans, and relive part of the happiest memories of your childhood, and create new memories. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
