He can fly. He does magic. And he is the "chosen one" -- the only person who can save Muggles and Wizards from Lord Voldemort (No Biggie! ;) ) The Boy Who Lived, Harry Potter, celebrates his birthday today, July 31st! And yes, we mean the character Harry Potter, not Daniel Radcliffe, who celebrated his birthday just over a week ago!Â
Join J-14 in wishing Harry James Potter a very magical birthday!
Fun facts about Harry:
-Harry's first crush (and also first kiss!) was with Cho Chang, a witch from Ravenclaw house who was a year older than him!
- Besides being an extraordinary wizard, Harry is also a fantastic Quidditch player and became the youngest seeker in over a century for the Gryffindor team! (In Book 7 we learn that his godfather, Sirius gave him his first broom (a toy one) for his first birthday!)
- Harry won the extremely challenging and dangerous Triwizard Tournament in his fourth year along with Cedric Diggory a.k.a Rob Pattinson a.k.a. Edward Cullen. ;)
- Harry was technically born in 1980, so that makes today his 29th birthday!
