Harry Potter: Interesting Facts!

Harry Potter is the most famous wizard of the century. Everyone has known him since he was an 11 year old boy. We still remember the actors, Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley and Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort. These wonderful and amazing actors made this movie come to life. J.K Rowling, the author, has made a wonderful series that nobody can put down. In this article, I will tell you all about Harry Potter, the forever unknown questions, and more! Remember, you can’t just say “Accio Answers!”

1.What kind of food do they eat at Hogwarts?

Well, they just eat normal food like us. There’s have no difference from food to food, except potions, which isn’t a food. They eat from chicken wings to corn, and more! They still cook, but with spells like “Incantatem Inflamare.”, which sets things on fire. Well, the only difference is at Hogwarts, it just appears randomly on the tables. Wonder how that works? Magic, of course!

2.Why does Harry Potter feel connected with his dead mom and dad?

He feels very connected with his dead parents because they always had a connection between each other since they died. Voldemort tried to break the connection of the Potter’s love, but Lily, his mother, sacrificed herself, and the connection of his family never broke. He always had desired to meet them, of course because he wanted to know more about them.

3.How is it at Hogwarts?

Amazing! I mean, the food, the classes, Quidditch and even the detention! They all are very lucky they get to go to Hogwarts. The homework though, is just torturing and hard! But as long as you’re as smart as Hermione, I think you will do perfectly fine. “Wingardium Leviosa!”

4.How did Draco and Harry view Muggles?

By the look of Draco, you can tell he is mean. He thinks that the children of Muggles should not go to Hogwarts because he thinks people without magical blood in their veins shouldn’t go. But on the other side, Harry thinks the children of Muggles are allowed to Hogwarts because he thinks any type of family came go to Hogwarts. Two completely different people!

5. If pictures can talk and move, isn’t that essentially immortal life?

Well, even if it’s a picture of you that can move, it’s not exactly immortal life, but it’s life in a painting. You can go into other paintings, talk, and even sing! For example, in the book,

Dumbledore was speaking to Harry about the Resurrection stone. I’m warning you, life is boring as a moving painting!

Now, this is the moment where facts are revealed. Stop reading if you don’t want spoilers!

1. These were some of the original of the characters before Rowling changed them: Hermione Puckle, Neville Puff, Draco Spinks, Lily Moon (Luna Lovegood), Madhari Patil, and Mati Patil.

2. Fred and George were born on April fool’s Day.

3. The only time the Weasley twins were ever apart were when George’s ear was cursed off and when Fred was killed.

4. George Weasley married Angelina Johnson and had two kids named Fred and Roxanne.

5. Fred and George once threw snow at Voldemort’s face.

6. Remus Lupin’s Patronus is a wolf (not a werewolf), because all things wolf-related disgust him.

7. His father, Lyall Lupin, once described werewolves as “soulless, evil, deserving nothing but death” in front of Greyback, and Greyback took his revenge by biting Remus just before his fifth birthday.

8. Lupin was posthumously awarded the Order of Merlin, First Class, the first werewolf to ever receive this honor.

9. Nymphadora Tonks’ original patronus was a jack rabbit, but it eventually changed to a wolf.

10. Minerva McGonagall was a gifted Quidditch player, but she experienced a nasty fall in her final year at Hogwarts that left her with a concussion and several broken ribs.

11. After graduation, Minerva fell head-over-heels in love with a Muggle boy named Dougal McGregor. He proposed to her, and although she wanted to accept, she declined in fear of never being able to reveal her true identity unless they had kids. If she broke the International Statute of Secrecy, she would lose the job at the Ministry for which she was giving him up. Minerva left for London three days later, and found herself bitter from heartbreak and hating her new life. She eventually took a teaching post at Hogwarts. Professor McGonagall ended up marrying her old boss at the Ministry, Elphinstone Urquart, who proposed several times before she accepted. Her husband suffered an accidental death (Venomous Tentacula bite) three years into their marriage. She always kept her maiden name.

12. Harry, Ron, and Hermione all got their own Chocolate Frog cards.
