Happy Birthday Harry Potter! ♥

Harry Potter Month
Harry Potter Month is a yearly event taking place throughout the month of July, to coincide with Harry Potter's birthday. Hosted by Faith @ GeekyZooGirl and myself here at Lunar Rainbows Reviews, the aim is to fill the month with all things Potter.  There will be themed posts, discussions, art and fans rereading the books and rewatching the movies, all of which will earn the participants House-Points towards the House Cup at the end of the month. For more information or to sign up, click here.

Hi everyone and Happy Harry Potter Day!! Today marks Harry Potter's 35th birthday, and at the risk of making myself feel old, I take comfort in the fact that I'm the same age as The Boy Who Lived!

This means that today is the last day of Harry Potter Month, and if it wasn't already obvious, I had a blast chatting with all of you throughout July, gushing about our favorite characters, favorite books, favorite quotes and favorite moments! Thank you so much to everyone who participated and who went above and beyond what both Faith and I expected. This was such a HUGE success, on all fronts and we couldn't have managed it without you all ♥ Ok, I'll stop myself here before I turn into an emotional mess XD

 I'm really digging this new find^^ can't you tell? ;)

Because of how important today is - it's basically THE reason we have HP Month in July - I wanted to give a shoutout to The Boy Who Lived (again). Last year, I posted a long, gushy post sharing why I love Harry so much, so I won't bore you with more of the same this year. Instead, I'll keep it simple:

Happy Birthday Harry Potter

You are, and will forever be my hero of all heroes.

You are, and will forever be my favorite character of all time.

You are incredibly strong, brave, caring, clever and full of love.

You are an inspiration that never fails to give me hope.

Since I read the series, I've often thought: WWHD - What Would Harry Do?

I know I've said it before, but if I said it every day for the rest of my life, it still wouldn't be enough:



  1. I love this! Happy Birthday Harry indeed! :D
    Thank you and Faith for hosting this awesome month! I had so much fun. :) I'm sad that it is almost over, but it was so awesome meeting new people who love Harry Potter just as much as I do! I look forward to doing this again next year

  2. Holy crap, 35?! Yeah, *I* do feel old :P

    Happy birthday Harry Potter!

  3. I had so much fun gushing about Harry Potter all month!! Thank you and Faith so much for hosting the event!! You can count me in for next year too if we do this again :D I loved reading everyone's posts and comments so much and getting to dive back into the books and movies for about the gazillionth time. Happy Birthday Harry Potter!

  4. Aw, I love this so much <3 It's been awesomely fun reading all your Harry Potter posts this month and it reminded me how much I love the series. Happy Birthday Harry!

  5. Ahh, Micheline, this is so cool! :) I love all the art your collected, such great pics.
    Yeah, Harry changed my view of the world, too, and shaped me as a reader.
    I loved participating in Harry Potter month! I'm still slowly getting through my re-read (I'm nearing the end of Goblet of Fire now) but I'm going to continue and post reviews as I go along.
    Thanks so much for hosting this event! :)

  6. AHHHH HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARRY POTTER! For some reason, whenever I think of the books, I can't help but cry. It really was such a magical series that transcends time and all ages. I read it as a 21 year old and yet I connected so much to the characters in the first book and beyond. I can really understand how this series defined so many childhoods, and how so many children hoped to receive their own Hogwarts letter, too. Frack, I'm tearing up just writing this XDD

  7. It makes me feel better knowing that I'm only a few years older than Harry, hehe. Ah, this has been such a fantastic event, and I can't emphasize how much HP Month has made me fall in love with the series all over again. ❤ Thank you so much to both you and Faith for all of your hard work organizing this event! Can't wait till next year! :D

  8. YAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARRY! I'm so glad I've grown up with the books. <3
