Exploring September in the Harry Potter Universe

Exploring September in the Harry Potter Universe

I’ve updated all the entries and artwork that will appear on the home page scroller. The theme this time around is “September.”

A lot happens at Hogwarts in the first month of the school year: Quidditch tryouts, the first classes for each subject for the year, the First Years learning to fly, and a lot of just settling into the peaceful routine of school life at Hogwarts.

Of course, for Harry and his fellow Gryffindors, nothing is simple or peaceful. There’s an ill-fated midnight excursion around the dark corridors of the castle in 1991 and excursions into memories of Voldemort‘s past in 1996. There are Howlers and new brooms and a valuable lesson learned about not mocking hippogriffs. There’s a broken wrist for Neville and a broken wand causing Ron to vomit slugs. There’s a visit to Hagrid‘s, a visit to the staff room with its boggart in the wardrobe, and memorably, in 1997, a visit to the Ministry of Magic to steal a Horcrux. And we can’t forget the creation of S.P.E.W. by the one and only Hermione Granger (although the filmmakers did).
