J.K. Rowling might have put an end to the story of Harry Potter in her last book “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” but there is something about the book that made it relevant this year on Sept. 1. It was on this day that a middle-aged Harry’s sons go to Hogwarts School.

The epilogue of the book mentions this event and the author of the epic book series took out time to celebrate the fictional event. She tweeted about it writing that today is the day when Albus Severus Potter boards the Hogwarts Express at King’s Cross for the first time. What is more, her Pottermore website launched a virtual tour of the Hogwarts School to observe the occasion.

Harry and Ginny send Albus and James to Hogwarts School

The epilogue of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” sees Harry and Ginny getting ready to send off their sons Albus and James to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Daughter Lily Luna is also present with her parents and brothers but she is too small to attend the school. However, the brothers have two other companions- Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy. The former is the daughter of Ron and Hermione while the latter is the son of Draco and Astoria.

Notably, the seventh book in the series “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” was published in 2007, but it had the story set in the nineties with events ending in 1998. By that account, the epilogue which talks about Harry’s life nineteen years later, boils down to materializing in 2017 and so, here is the author celebrating the day.

As fans may know, the Harry Potter saga came to an end with the seventh book but it was revived with the two-part stage play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” in 2016.
