Harry Potter turns 36

"The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches... born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies... and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives... the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies...."
— Sybill Trelawney's prophecy made to Albus Dumbledore

The prophecy was made by Professor Sybill Trelawney on the same year when Harry Potter was born. Born on the last day of July, 1980, Harry Potter is the boy who lived. Though the great wizard will forever be our 'youngest seeker in a century', if Harry is a real person, he'll, in fact, be celebrating his 36th birthday today. 

To all Potterheads out there, like me, let's reminisce 7 magical birthdays of Harry Potter in the Wizarding World.

Remember that time when our Harry first came to the Dursleys' front door at 4 Privet Drive in Little Whinging?

"Good luck, Harry Potter" - Dumbledore

Remember that time when Harry Potter first learned that he's a wizard on his 11th birthday? It's also the first time he ever received a cake.

Hagrid: "Yer a wizard, Harry"
"I mean... I'm...just...Harry. Just Harry"

I'm Harry, just Harry.

Remember that time when Ron, George and Fred Weasley rescued Harry from the Dursleys on his 12th birthday?

"Rescuing you, of course" -Ron

Remember that time when the Mr. Weasley won the Daily Prophet Draw of seven hundred galleons? Ron sent Harry a birthday card and a copy of Daily Prophet and talked about their trip to Egypt.

"Dear Harry,
Happy birthday! Look, I’m really sorry about that telephone call. I hope the Muggles didn’t give you a hard time. I asked Dad, and he reckons I shouldn’t have shouted.
It’s brilliant here in Egypt..." -Ron, pottermore.wikia.com/

      In which movie does Mr.Weasley get attacked by Nagini?

Remember that time before his 4th year in Hogwarts began, when Harry get to watch the Quidditch World Cup?

Remember that time when Harry first came to No. 12 Grimmauld Place, the noble and most ancient House of Black?

"We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are." - Sirius Black


Remember the time when Harry won the Felix Felicis in Professor Slughorn's potions class? It's just like his birthday, who doesn't want the Felix Felicis? :P

Remember that time, on Harry's 17th birthday, he kissed Ginny?
