It’s The First Day Of Hogwarts And Everyone Is Really, Really Excited

James S Potter Main

With less than a week until a new school year starts, you may already be getting the binder blues. Sure, school can feel like a never-ending cycle of assignments, tests, essays, and counting down the clock until 3 p.m., but you’re not alone. Even wizards are heading back to academia. That’s right, you’re just like a wizard. Feeling better yet?

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling tweeted a good luck message today to James Potter II, son of the great wizarding couple Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley.

September 1 marks the first day of school for Hogwarts students, with Harry, Hermoine and Ron meeting on this day 24 years ago. Today is also the first day of Hogwarts for Harry and Ginny’s oldest son, which I think makes us really old, but let’s not focus on that.

Harry Potter fans around the world know that today at 11 a.m., the train to Hogwarts left Kings Cross Station on Platform 9 ¾. The new students arrived at Hogsmeade Station this evening and then headed to the great hall for the sorting ceremony. Young Potter has already been sorted, with the outcome pretty predictable. Score one for Gryffindor!

Potterheads around the world have made #BackToHogwarts a trending topic again this year, taking to Twitter and Instagram to relive their favourite story and bring the feels.

Good luck at school, James!
