Today (January 13) marks the day Harry Potter started Occlumency lessons with Professor Snape!

On a lazy Sunday like this you may have just been absent-mindedly browsing Facebook, or maybe even listening to the new episode of Alohomora!, but we’re willing to bet you didn’t know just how important this day was to Harry Potter fans. Did you know today (January 13) was the day Harry Potter began Occlumency lessons with Professor Snape – exactly 17 years ago?

Did you remember the date, or did we stump you? Surely you’d have to be some kind of super Harry Potter fan to remember an obscure date like that, right? Well… perhaps not!

For a little while now we have been promoting the new MuggleNet fandom calendar on our website – a 2013 calendar with all of the usual functionality of a normal calendar but with a little extra magic. This unique calendar we’re talking about already comes pre-marked with all of the most significant dates from the Harry Potter fandom, including birthdays of the characters/film actors, dates of notable Potter conventions, and even memorable dates from the book series, like this one.

Why not add a little magic to your daily routine with this new calendar created by the #1 Harry Potter fansite? We guarantee it’s more fun to schedule your own important events alongside those from the wizarding world.
