It's Harry Potter Day

This morning I saw a video of the Harp Twins electric playing "Hedwig's Theme" on harps (of course).

And in the usual way of the internet, one click led to another, and I found this great piano solo by Jarrod Radnich.

Which led me to this video about people who have never read or seen Harry Potter, but attempt to explain what it's about using the info that they've heard about the books and movies.

I could have gone on and on. There are videos (the Honest Harry Potter trailer; the Everything Wrong With...videos regarding the errors or odd things in various Harry Potter movies). There are blooper reels, trailers and more.

Then there are the "Which Harry Potter Character Are You?" quizzes. There's this one.
And also this one. (I'm sure there are more, but I stopped there).

Just putting the words Harry Potter in a Google search turns up 226 million results, but maybe I should just take the time to watch some of the movies or read some of the books again. I'm clearly in a Harry Potter mood!

I'm actually re-watching the HARRY POTTER movies right now as I knit. I love the magic & the humour.

Mary, I think I may have mentioned this before, but I watched all the movies first, then read the books in one fell swoop. Eventually, I bought all of the movies. Watching them again leaves me with a smile on my face.

This is one area where we differ. I haven't read any of the books. I have seen bits of some movies on TV but nothing kept my attention. Just not into it. I must admit I prefer cheerier movies, as this series was physically too dark (and probably emotionally as well) for my liking. I'm glad you both get such a kick out of it, though!

Laney4, I always say that it's good that there are so many different things to like. Something for everyone!
