Catholic School Bans ‘Harry Potter’ Books Because SpellsToy Tuesday: The Best Animal Toys Stay on target We’ve had 20 years with this guy. That’s right; twenty years. Two zero. Try not feeling old when you read that. Today is also a special day for Harry Potter fans. It’s Harry Potter’s birthday! So let’s all get out from under the stairs and celebrate.As if I need to tell you, Harry Potter is one of the biggest things to ever happen ever. Like, really. Biggest. The book series has sold hundreds of millions of copies. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s (or Philosopher’s) Stone alone has sold over one hundred and seven million copies, making it one of the highest selling fiction books of all time. That one book alone in the series has outsold Alice In Wonderland by several million copies. The movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 is also one of the highest grossing films of all time raking in a staggering $1.3 billion dollars. That gives this birthday boy a lot of clout in the marketplace!Now in the past, there was a bit of birthday controversy over whether or not Harry was born in 1980 or 1979. This is in part because he was born on a Tuesday according to the first book which came out in 1997, but that contradicts the second book in which Harry was there for Nearly Headless Nick’s death day anniversary in 1992 where Harry is explicitly 12 by October 31st. July 31st falls on a Thursday as it’s a leap year. Many seem to accept that he was born July 31, 1980 at this point, but I’m sure some of you out there would debate that because internet. Either way, Harry Potter is still safely categorized as a millennial which most definitions put as people born between 1977 and 1994. With the kind of fortune he’s made in book and movie sales, Harry will probably help price you out of your neighborhood in Brooklyn too.It’s also J. K. Rowling’s birthday today.
