I Remember my first trip into the Wizarding World, Mrs. Botrill my grade 3 teacher read us Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and I was hooked.

I Remember getting the boxed set of the first 3 books for Christmas that year. I managed to get my mom and even my dad, who wasn’t a big reader, into them and we’d read a chapter or two… or 3… out loud to each other every night.

I Remember being one of the first kids at Davidson Road dressed up as Harry Potter for Halloween, the next year everyone was.

I Remember growing up with Daniel, Emma and Rupert, or Harry, Hermione and Ron as they will be known for the rest of their lives.

I Remember seeing the first few movies for Eric Geen’s birthday, and being so bitterly disappointed one year when a snowstorm cancelled it

I Remember finding Fanfiction and after wading through the Oceans of trash, Mary-Sues, and Harry/Draco slash fics, find some real gems. Because Harry and Hermion need to be together no matter what JK Rowling says.

I Remember driving down with my Parents to Las Vegas, Goblet of Fire had just come out and I couldn’t wait as we read it together so I read the car. I can’t remember how many times I got carsick. But it was worth it.

I Remember never playing any of the Lego Harry potter games, but I did buy some of the actual sets.

I Remember correctly predicting that Harry was a Horcrux and needed to die in the seventh book.

I Remember good times chatting with people around the world on Harry Potter forums

I Remember wondering if Sir Ian McKellan (would’ve been ironic) or Sir Christopher Lee would’ve replaced Dumbledore
