Today is Harry Potter’s Birthday! It has been known as the International Harry Potter Day, and fans are celebrating all over the world. It also happens to be JK Rowling’s Birthday, and we hope she is having a beautiful one wherever she is! For those of you who don’t know or can’t remember, Harry’s date of birth was a very important detail in the book/film series, mostly because of a prophecy by Sybill Trelawney, which stated that a boy who could defeat Lord Voldemort would soon be born.

“The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches… born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies… and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not… and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives… the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies….”

That, of course, explains why Lord Voldemort spent so much of his increasingly low enegergy after The Chosen One over the course of 7 books and 8 films. Join us in our celebration on Twitter using the hashtag #PotterDay!
