Today, 20 years ago, the Boy Who Lived changed our lives forever!



It’s hard to remember a world before Harry Potter. Today marks the 20th anniversary of the publishing of the first book, and it’s incredible to think of all the amazing things that have happened since that event.

The Harry Potter site Pottermore put together a lovely, touching video on Facebook remembering some of the best moments of the series, and we wanted to share it with you here too! Scroll down for the awesome video.

And we wanted to know: What’s your favorite memory from Harry Potter? Is it reading a certain scene in the books? Is it going to the theater and seeing the characters brought to life on the big screen? Is it connecting with others over a story in a way you never had before? Is it the simple fact that you learned to love reading? There are countless reasons to love this series. All we can say is thanks, Jo, for the amazing story.
