…Muggles and wizards alike can hardly contain their excitement. If you’re planning a bash to commemorate this momentous occasion (and why wouldn’t you?), here are some suggestions to ensure this is a night no memory charm could ever make you forget:
Dish Out Some Of Your Favorite Recipes From:
The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook by Dinah Bucholz
Whether your palate craves something savory or sweet, you don’t need a spell to bring this magic to life right in your own kitchen… though when everyone applauds you as the new favorite chef among your group of friends, you may just wonder if there wasn’t a little bit of enchantment involved.
Sip Some Tea
Plus, when you’re finished, you can offer to read each other’s tea leaves. Be sure to tell someone they’ve got the Grim. Heck, tell everyone they’ve got the Grim. Parties are for going big, after all. Professor Trelawney would be so proud.
And actually, why stop at socks? Dobby loves clothing, so deck him out! Give each player at the party a different article of apparel — a hat, a sweater, some pants — and everyone can be a winner!
Play ‘Pin The Sock On The House Elf.’
Host A Horcrux-Themed Scavenger Hunt
…you’ll have to improvise on that front for now. Get your party guests outside and have them search for the Horcruxes that will bring about Voldemort’s demise… Maybe skip the live snake, though.
Now you can finally tell all those Scrabble sticklers that, yes, Snargaluff is a word — and a triple word score at that! The victory is finally yours, and you didn’t even have to use the Confundus charm on anyone to get it.
Play Scrabble Or Bananagrams
However you choose to celebrate the re-emergence of Harry Potter back in our lives — with any of these ideas or one of your own — one thing’s for sure: it will be a most magical day, indeed.
Pass the pumpkin juice, please…
