It’s not often that fictional characters can have birthdays long after their respective series have finished, and still have thousands of people celebrating the day online. But that’s because it’s not often that a fictional series has the impact that Harry Potter has had.
6 years after the final film was released, and 10 years since the release of the last book, Harry Potter is still celebrated by old and young fans alike, especially on July 31st- the birthday of the boy wizard.
