Happy Birthday, Harry and J.K Rowling!

Hedwig and Harry

Today we celebrate two very special birthdays; Harry James Potter, born in England on July 31, 1980, and the creator of this beloved wizard, J.K Rowling. This gifted writer created a magical world, a wizarding world that changed our culture forever. Following the saga of Harry and his best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermoine Granger, Rowling energized a generation of children to read.

I am a Harry Potter head for sure. I celebrated my 60th birthday last year at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Florida. I was also one of the millions who visited Universal upon the inauguration of the “Wizarding World.” I’ve read all of the books 3 times over and love the overarching message of the power of love and friendship in this best-selling series.

Let’s take a little trip down memory lane with our favorite wizards!
