All Harry Potter fans know that July 31 is Harry's birthday. It is also the day Hagrid tells Harry he is a wizard. A couple of years ago, we began hosting enormous Harry Potter birthday celebrations. Forty of our closest friends usually crowd into our house, dressed as Harry Potter characters and eating Harry Potter-inspired treats. You can read about those events here and here.
Due to COVID-19, such a party was obviously not going to happen this year. That, however, did not mean we would forget Harry's birthday altogether.
Our celebrations began with a movie marathon. As soon as Meg and Clare woke up, they turned on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. We made it through movies one through three over the course of the day. While the movies played, we began putting together a Harry Potter jigsaw puzzle. I purposely chose a puzzle with 500 pieces so it would not be overly challenging. I also chose a puzzle with lots of color. Some of the puzzles are just various tones of black and gray and I thought that would be too difficult. You can find the puzzle I chose here.
