According to the books, Harry Potter was born on July 31, 1980, so that would make Harry 42 on Sunday!

He's probably celebrating with Ginny Weasley his wife and his 2 sons, James Sirius, Albus Severus, and daughter Lily Luna Potter. I'm sure they're all toasting with some butter beers ! I'm sure that Ron Weasley and Hermione Grainger are celebrating with them as well as Hagrid!

To celebrate Harry Potter's birthday, the SyFy Channel is broadcasting a Harry Potter marathon showing the films in order, all weekend long!

I remember broadcasting live from Mr. Paperback stores when the Harry Potter books were released. There would be hundreds of people waiting to purchase the book at 12:01 a.m. We would play "Harry Says" and "Find the Snitch" while waiting for the books to be released
