30 Harry Potter Moments That Will Always Have A Place In Your Heart

As we come up on Harry Potter’s birthday (July 31st in case you forgot) it is important to remember why we still love Harry Potter so much. “After all this time?” you may ask. Always. (Pun intended.)

Yes, we may own all of the books and reread them once a year. Yes, we may own all the DVDs and watch them occasionally on a rainy day. Yes, we may YouTube clips of the movie just to get a chuckle that will get us through the day, but nothing is quite as magical as an unexpected Harry Potter movie marathon that is on all weekend long, no matter what time of the day you turn it on!

Here is why Harry Potter movie marathons will be forever magical & why we must watch them every time they are on:

  1. We forever look back at the Sorcerer’s Stone and think, “THEY LOOK SO YOUNG!” Even though, we were the same age when it came out13817146_10154416705824515_379030855_n
