"That wand is more trouble than it’s worth,” said Harry. “And honestly,” he turned away from the painted portraits, thinking now only of the four-poster bead lying waiting for him in Gryffindor Tower, and wondering whether Kreacher might bring him a sandwich there, “I’ve had enough trouble for a lifetime."

While watching Chamber of Secrets, I have to question why witches and wizards would want to turn an animal into a goblet.  Do you serve wine to your guests in these goblets? Or do you only cast this spell when you are away from civilization and don’t wish to drink directly out of a stream?

As we enter the month of July, I think it would be fun to share stories about the Harry Potter book and movie releases.  You can submit your own story here or send me an ask with the title of the book/movie and I’ll let you know what I remember about the release date.

The Political Impact of Harry Potter

Hello followers,

I recently discovered this article discussing how the Harry Potter books have politically influenced the “Millennial” generation (those who were about 11 when the first book was released). 

Feel free to submit Harry Potter related articles here.

Harry Potter Treats

Yer a wizard Amanda. The four words that were never once said to me *sadness*. However, we can make up for that! Imagine my immense joy at having found recipes straight from Hogwarts, Hogsmeade and Honeydukes. I might have squealed a bit. From Acid Pops to Chocolate Frogs to Licorice Wands to Cockroach Clusters to Butterbeer and BUTTERBEER CUPCAKES. Wut. And as an added bonus some Caldron Cakes if you ever feel like taking a Potions class. It’s okay to cry; I know how you feel. I’m dying to make these too. You can thank me later.

Recipe for sweets here. And for ButterbeerButterbeer Cupcakes, and Cauldron Cakes.

Anonymous said: I'm sorry but you DO REALIZE that "where your treasure is, there will be your heart also" is from the BIBLE, right? Yes? Okay.

Actually, I did not realize that the quote on that headstone was from the Bible as well.  I actually have not read the bible all the way through, some of the passages I read years ago, and I’m not sure if I have the same edition as what J. K. Rowling used.  

I think, rather than being angry that I credited the quote to J. K. Rowling, we can use the two headstone quotes to open a discussion of the possibility of Wizards being christians.  

Harry believes that it is Albus who chose the quote for Ariana and Kendra. That means that the Dumbledore family had a bible in the household.  Perhaps it was a favorite quote of Kendra? I know my great-grandmother underlined her favorite bible passages. 

Now, who chose the quote for the Potters?  Perhaps it was Petunia, but it seems unlikely that she would have chosen such a quote.  Sirius or Remus?  Maybe it was written in their wills that they wanted “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death” as the quote on their headstone.  It was a time of war, so having a will at 20 does not seem like an outlandish idea.  

Who picked out the quote? Lily or James? Maybe they cuddled on the couch on Sunday mornings reading the bible together.  Or they read the bible in bed together.  Perhaps when they reached Song of Songs Lily read the Beloved parts and James read the Lover, before they started cuddling and kissing each other.  

If you could give me the book, chapter, and verse I will gladly edit that post and give credit to the bible as well.
