Cheer Up the Lonely with “Harry Potter”
Today is Cheer Up the Lonely Day, and here at MuggleNet, we love cheering people up. The perfect way to honor this holiday is by finding the lonely people in your life and surrounding them with Harry Potter. You can do this with the books, movies, or fandom. Here are a few ideas to help you bring cheer to someone who needs it.
1. Gift Them with Books
Do you have any unwanted copies of the Potter books laying around? If so, go ahead and find someone to gift a copy to. Remember how happy you felt the first time you read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone? You could bring that experience to someone who really needs it. No unwanted copies to be found? Stop by your local thrift shop or used bookstore. Support a local business and spread cheer at the same time.
2. Movie Marathon
Surround your lonely friend with love and Potter. Marathon all eight movies; sure, it might take up the whole day, but it will be worth it. Spend time with them and joke about scenes in the movies. Laugh and cry and spend an entire day in the wizarding world.
3. Introduce Them to the Fandom
The Potter fandom is a fantastic place to find friends. Show them that they can be welcomed into a community filled with magical people. There are so many great ways to become involved in the Potter fandom. Fan fiction, fan art, discussions, memes, and role-playing games are just a few of the many things you can find in our huge fandom. Give them the tools that they need to meet new friends.
These are just a few ways that you can honor Cheer Up the Lonely Day. Do you have any other ideas or special plans for the day? Let us know in the comments!
