May 2nd to be officially declared “International Harry Potter Day”
As of this year, May 2nd will officially be declared “International Harry Potter Day”!
Below is the official statement that has been released by Prime Minister David Cameron:
“There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Ms. Rowling’s work has had a huge and undeniable impact on the literary world as we know it. In order to fully commemorate and immortalize her work, we have to decided to officially declare May 2nd as an official international holiday, in honor of the date that protagonist Harry Potter conquered the main antagonist of the series, Lord Voldemort. We hope that children and adults alike will be reminded of Harry Potter’s strong and courageous character on this day, as well as of the true credit that Ms. Rowling has made to society.”
As Potter fans, we feel it’s about time!
