Harry Potter completed another Birthday this year on 31st July (today) 🙂 Harry shares his birthday with J K Rowling.. I have grown up with the Harry Potter books and can feel the excitement.. I completed my 8th year of potter fanship, which means that I am crazy about Harry from past 8 years!!! I grew up from being a teenager to being a big girl along with Harry.. There was a time when I and a friend of mine were so addicted to the series that we had named each and every person in our college (all the students and professors) to some character from Harry Potter.. We had even named ourselves too – I was Sirius black aka. padfoot and my friend was James Potter since we were really good friends.. Of course, we had not named anyone Harry since Harry was like the best and no one would fit that role.. There was Malfoy, Crabbe and Goyle, Karkaroff (our HOD), Basilisk (a prof who would keep staring at us for giggling in class – remember the basilisk’s eyes?), Mc Gonagall, Dobby (a rather skinny short girl), Veela (a girl who would dress well and guys would keep drooling at her) etc etc.. it was fun..
Lets see how Harry celebrated his 7 birthdays:
Harry turned eleven when Hagrid came to visit him with a cake. He told Harry that he is a wizard and gets to know that his parents did not die in a car crash.. Dudley gets a cute pig tail in this scene (shown in movie)
The worst birthday Harry had.. Uncle Vernon invites some rich builder and his wife for dinner while Harry is asked to be in his room, pretending he is not there.. Harry is so depressed since he doesnt hear from any of his friends.. Dobby comes and ruins the party for which Harry gets locked in his room.. (shown in movie)
Harry gets three owls with birthday cards for the first time in his life.. Ron sends Harry a pocket sneakoscope.. Hermione gives Harry a Broomstick servicing kit.. Hagrid sends the funniest gift possible – The Monster book of monsters (the biting book).. (shown in movie)
Harry got lot of good stuff from friends..He had received four superb birthday cakes, one each from Ron, Hermione, Hagrid, and Sirius.. Dudley was on serious diet eating grapefruit while Harry enjoyed his cakes.. (Not shown in movie)
Another depressing birthday since Ron and Hermione were not ready to reveal wizarding world news.. They each sent him a card along with Honeydukes chocolates.. His birthday surprise this year was in the form of dementors sent to kill him.. (shown in movie)
He celebrates his birthday at Ron’s house, Burrow with a nice cake prepared by Mrs.Weasley.. but his birthday celebration is punctuated with the news of more deaths, kidnaps and dementor attacks brought by Lupin.. (not shown in movie)
This being his last birthday, it is again at the Burrow, the day before the wedding.. He becomes seventeen and so can do magic even when he is not at school.. Ron gifts him a book “Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches”.. Hermione gifts him a sneakoscope, Ginny snogs, Bill and Fleur gift an enchanted razor, Delacours give him chocolates, Fred and George gift him an enormous box of the latest Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes merchandise and Hagrid gives him a moleskin.. Minister of magic comes and hands over the things mentioned in Dumbledore’s will..

Happy birthday to -The Boy Who lived…… and the boy who always lives in our heart…whenever I think of harry potter now a days, a sad feeling remains as the story ended… and just a film remaining…

@shankar: Sirius is ok….people used to call me Cho Chang (wen book 5 was released)….because …well….i LOVE harry potter!!!
Thanks all (on behalf of Harry) for bday wishes 😀 @shankar: haha.. but I liked Sirius Black’s character a lot.. I really admire that character.. @Arvee: Yeah today is JKR’s bday too.. I have wished her too.. Btw you must have been pretty jealous of Ginny then 😛 Wonder what you did after reading book 6.. lol
Happy b’day to Harry and also J.K.Rowling 🙂

@Avada kedavra: I too like sirius a lot…. I really hate JKR for two things… she killed the character so soon….and none of harry’s kids got sirius in their name… when they have severus and albus..why not sirius???
@arvee: cho chang…..yuk…. I hate cho….lucky ginny came to the rescue of harry…
Yeah sirius got killed so soon 😦 but it was necessary so that harry becomes all alone and it also shows that Harry is just a normal boy who can commit mistakes.. it was coz of Harry’s mistake that sirius gets killed 😦
Yeah..but about the name?? I was eager and I was sure one of harry’s son would be sirius….. But JKR didnt..
Yeah she cud have kept the other guy James Sirius.. that wud have made sense too since they were best friends (James & Sirius).. wonder why she later on neglected sirius 😦 but yeah a sad feeling is there that the series got over 😦
Oh my and I thought I was the greatest fan of Harry…:O
hehe 🙂 nice to meet another potter fan
Ha ha ha! That was brilliant! 😀
And naming your HOD ‘Karkaroff’ was THE best!
Feels a certain emptiness in life now though… that there are no more HP books to look forward to! 😦
Btw, I have seen u around in bloggersville, but hopped in today from indiblogger – your recent introduction there. Why ‘Avada Kedavra’ though?
🙂 Thanks for dropping in.. Yeah no more HP books, no more excitement 😦 ‘Avada Kedavra’ is just for fun.. I was just looking for nickname and since I was a potter freak, just came up with this name 🙂
