Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! How to join up & upcoming topics here.
Hi all! It's Thursday and you know what that means: it's time for some Harry Potter reminiscing! This week, we're talking about a very special character:
Favorite Hagrid Moment
Hagrid has had lots of memorable moments within the Harry Potter series: Delivering Harry to Number 4 Privet on Sirius' Flying Motorcycle, his pink Umbrella/Wand, giving Dudley that tail, gifting Harry with his very first birthday gift: Hedwig ♥, welcoming and escorting all the First Years to Hogwarts, all the gifts and rock biscuits he gave to Harry throughout the years. His endearing and often baffling love for all magical creatures...the list goes on and on up to carrying Harry in his arms at the end of DH *sniff* but I think I have to go with THE BIG defining moment in the series:
Hagrid delivered THE LINE that forever changed Harry Potter's life - and set the entire series in motion. It makes me sad that Hagrid is underappreciated a lot of the time...I mean, he's a HUGE (pun intended) influence on Harry's life and an often overlooked father-figure to our hero. Hagrid loved Harry from the moment he carried him to Number 4 Privet that faithful night so it only makes sense that he was the one saying the words that altered Harry existence so completely up to that point.
