25 Signs You’re A Harry Potter Addict


Apparently Harry Potter is 34, so raise up your Butterbeers and celebrate!

Warning: This article contains Harry Potter spoilers. Also, if something is spoiled for you, it’s time to move on, because you’ve had seven years to catch up.

It’s Harry Potter’s 34th birthday, and it’s time to celebrate. Maybe you’ve been celebrating with butterbeers all day, but there is a reason to celebrate the most famous wizard in the world: because he’s seriously the best fictional person ever. Duh.

You’ve waited in line at midnight multiple times, you stayed up for days on end reading the books, and you just still can’t get over the fact that Harry Potter is over. These are all symptoms of an addiction. No one here is judging you, but relax on the muggle insults and obsession. Here are 25 signs you’re probably still obsessing over Harry Potter:

Sometimes when you’re giving yourself a pep talk, you remind yourself that if you were a wizard, you totally would’ve been accepted to Hogwarts:
