About International Harry Potter Day
International Harry Potter day is the adopted day of the year that fans (affectionately referred to as “Potterheads”) celebrate all things associated with the wizarding world. Every year, this event takes place on May 2nd.
Why is May 2nd International Harry Potter Day?
According to the timeline in the original Harry Potter books, The Battle of Hogwarts would have taken place on May 2nd 1998 which is the date Voldemort was finally defeated.
International Harry Potter Day is therefore the anniversary of the battle and has become a day to mark the significance of J.K. Rowling’s work.
