Hi fellow bloggers! Are you interested in celebrating the anniversary of Harry Potter this year??
This year, on June 26th, will be 21 years since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published in the UK. And yes, 21 is kind of an awkward number, but I didn’t have a blog last year for the 20th anniversary, and I guess that means the series can legally drink in the US, which means nothing because it’s British, but ANYWAYS.
I will be posting something Harry Potter related on the seven days leading up to June 26th, and I’m inviting you to join me! You don’t have to post every day – you can do one or three or however many you want. It’s a way of celebrating a series that we love and spreading the joy!
- Link back to one of my posts at Weird Zeal so I can see that you’re taking part!
- Tag your friends and tell them to join in as well!
- Have fun!
This is the schedule:
Day 1: June 20th – Hogwarts tag
We’ll start out with this fun tag about what your life would be like as a Hogwarts student! (We can still dream, right?) After a ton of digging, I still wasn’t able to find the original creator of this tag, but if anyone happens to know that, let me know!
Day 2: June 21st – Rank the books and/or movies
Which is your favorite? Which is your least favorite? What about everything in between? Give us all your Thoughts™.
Day 3: June 22nd – Top 7 characters
I know it’s tough to narrow down, but give us your favorite seven characters from the series, and tell us a little about why!
Day 4: June 23rd – a Harry Potter related story
Do you have a fun story about going to a book or movie release? Do you remember reading the books for the first time? Any particular fond memories you have attached to the series? Tell us all about it!
Day 5: June 24th – Ships
Tell us about some of your favorite Harry Potter ships! Do you like that Harry ended up with Ginny and Ron ended up with Hermione, or do you prefer something different? Do you ship something really weird and obscure, like the Sorting Hat with the giant squid? (I’ll only judge a little bit…)
Day 6: June 25th – Wildcard!
This day is up to you! Do you have a controversial opinion that you want to defend? Some cool Harry Potter trivia to share? A particular rant that you like to go on? Whatever you want, as long as it’s Harry Potter related!
Day 7: June 26th – a thank you
For the 21st anniversary of Harry Potter, write a thank you to someone, whether it’s J.K. Rowling, Harry, Warner Bros, or anyone else. Tell them what Harry Potter means to you!
Plus anyone else who wants to join! Seriously, spread this around! I’d love to have as many people as possible involved!
*I’m really just tagging a bunch of people, but I don’t know who’s into Harry Potter and who’s not! Join if you want, but no pressure!
