Also, as an extra point of interest this week, it was pointed out to me by Lin (a very clever Ravenclaw) that I missed a very important Harry Potter anniversary. The 21st July was the 10th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book being published. AND, Ione (another very clever Ravenclaw) has pointed out that 2017 is ’19 years later’ (the title of the final chapter of the final book, and the final scene in the movies); so it will be on the 1st September this year that Albus Severus Potter will be starting his first year at Hogwarts.
