Countdown to Deathly Hallows – 9

By

Yesterday was sure a lot of fun, coming up with all the tens. Here we are on July 12th, which means Deathly Hallows is 9 days away. How many occurances of the number 9 can we find associated with Harry Potter?

A few to get us started:

  • The Hogwarts Express leaves from Platform Nine and Three Quarters
  • Luna Lovegood was 9 years old when her mother died.
  • Harry paid 9 galleons for the new copy of Advanced Potion-Making (that he switched covers on the Half Blood Prince’s).
  • Jo once said (jokingly) about chapter nine in Goblet of Fire… “I hated that chapter so much; at one point, I thought of missing it out altogether and just putting in a page saying ‘Chapter Nine was too difficult’ and going straight to Chapter Ten.”
