As Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling celebrates her birthday today turned out to be 39 years old. On his 11th birthday on July 31, 1991, Harry James Potter, then living with his maternal aunt Petunia Dursley and her family, came to know that he is actually a wizard. It is a youngster's struggle to adapt to the wizarding world, forging new friendships, realizations of a fate tied with the most powerful dark wizard of all times, Lord Voldemort, and the subsequent Battle of Hogwarts where he is able to defeat him, spanning seven books.
Harry Potter, the boy wizard introduced in J.K. Rowling's book series and the movies that followed, is turning 39 (He was born, according to Pottermore, the bible of the wizarding world, on July 31, 1980).
From Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to Deathly Hallows, this is a series that has enthralled every generation with its mix of magic, intrigue, friendship, and the triumph of good over evil.
Many critics, readers and audiences considered as one of the greatest literary and cinematic characters of all time, J K Rowling's creation who first appeared in the 1997 book Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone has long transcended the pages of the time, being turned into one of the most well-known characters in cinema and somewhere down the line, a living, breathing persona in the imaginations of every youngster out there.
Organizers said they have been working for over a month to create cool photo opportunities, Harry Potter themed treats, and games.
