Whether you’re a fantasy fan or not, Harry Potter is an iconic character in pop culture and I am so fascinated that J.K. Rowling can create a character that is well-loved by so many around the world.
If Harry wasn’t a fictional character, today would be his birthday.
How do we celebrate the birthday of someone who is entirely fictional? Well, some would pack their wand, hop on a broomstick and dive into one of J.K. Rowling’s books. It was 1997 when J.K. Rowling released “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” in 1997. Her own birthday is actually July 31st, so the two share the same birthday. Coincidence?
