Harry Potter is a British-American series featuring a fantasy world in which children are sent letters inviting them to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The first novel, The Philosopher’s Stone, was released in 1997, and a new novel was released yearly with the titles The Chamber of Secrets (1998), The Prisoner of Azkaban (1999), and the Goblet of Fire (2000). Author J.K. Rowling took her time with the final three novels, releasing The Order of the Phoenix in 2003, followed by The Half-Blood Prince in 2005 and The Deathly Hallows in 2007. Throughout the seven novels we reveled in the experience, following Harry and his friends, Ron and Hermione, into some seriously dangerous situations. Each book reveals more and more of the evilness and desparation of Lord Voldemort or He Who Must Not Be Named; and each time the trio of young wizards rise to face the villain and claim victory for themselves and the goodness of humans everywhere. “Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is right and what is easy.” And then came the movies, beginning with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2001. Fans rejoiced as they watched the magic they held in their hearts and imaginations come to life on the big screen. In 2002 The Chamber of Secrets was released, followed by The Prisoner of Azkaban in 2004. The Goblet of Fire and The Order of the Phoenix were released in 2005 and 2007, respectively; The Half-Blood Prince hit the box office in 2009 and had us all on the edges of our seats. For the final novel, it was decided to divide The Deathly Hallows into a two part film to capture all the fabulous little details; Part One was released in 2010 and was closely followed by Part 2 in 2011. When the last of the movies premiered, the whole world wept for the bittersweet ending of a decade of Harry Potter and the World of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Now that we’re all ugly crying, let’s do some retail therapy and stock up on Harry Potter #apparelbae.

The Weasley’s really have made a name for themselves in the wizarding world. Arthur works at the Ministry of Magic, Bill works at Gringott’s breaking curses, Charlie fucks with dragons, and Percy works at the Ministry with his father (eye roll). In a very different way, Fred and George Weasley made a name for themselves by creating epic pranks and practical jokes to pull. They started Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes shortly after they dropped out of Hogwarts, and just before Fred’s untimely, heartbreaking demise. (PS if you haven’t read the fanfic about George’s years after Fred’s death you are MISSING OUT!) GET IT HERE!

Some of you may ask, “But is it real Liquid Luck?” And my answer is this: Ron only ever thought he had Liquid Luck, and as a result acted in such a way that caused all of Gryffindor to scream, Weasley is our King! So does it really matter what’s inside? It only matters that you THINK it’s Liquid Luck. That’s how superstitions work, see. GET IT HERE!
Severus Snape had a lot more layers to him than he ever let on. The man took love, cocooned it in fear, then hatred, then self disgust. He spent most of his adult life making up for the mistakes he made when he was a young man, which led to his beloved’s death. ‘Always’ has become an official thing within the Harry Potter fandom, and we’re so happy for it. GET IT HERE!

The actor who played Ollivander in the movies, John Hurt, died at the beginning of 2017 after a long battle against pancreatic cancer. Since, many fans have been making tributes to the before-hand unrecognized importance of the wand maker. His history with the twin core wands, of course, was important to the storyline; but after his death, it seems we all have a bittersweet appreciation for Ollivander’s wonder at the fact that A) The wand chooses the wizard, and B) That Harry’s wand chose him specifically. GET IT HERE!
RIP John Hurt 1/22/40 – 1/25/17
Dumbledore was a smart old goat. He said a lot of really thought provoking things, and this has to be one of the top contenders for first place. “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.” GET IT HERE!
We saved the best for last, of course! This one is a double whammy for those who like Harry Potter AND Cats.
