Today is the day we celebrate Wizard Independence Day, The Last Battle of Hogwarts, the day day that Harry killed Lord Voldemort. Let us never forget May 2, 1998 and let us always remember those who died for that cause, Fred Weasley, Severus Snape, Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks and Colin Creevey.
Today is also sadly the first anniversary of this day that we don’t have any new Harry Potter to look forward to, no new book, no new movie, no new material. Yes, Harry Potter will live on in our hearts forever and as J.K. Rowling said, Hogwarts will always be here to welcome us home but that excited anxiety of waiting for new material won’t be here again. So that is something else I have been thinking about on this anniversary, sad yes, but at least we have our memories. And I’m thankful to be part of a fandom that is just as strong today without new material as it was during the prime of the new books and movies. Our fandom is the best.
