"The epicenter of the madness (er, magic) will be the Scholastic party outside its Mercer Street headquarters. Called "Harry Potter Place," the event will center around a clock that ticks away the seconds until the world can read the ending to Harry's saga. Kids can hop on board a real-life version of the "violently purple" triple-decker bus described in the series. Inside, they record videos of themselves rambling on about all things wizardly and can later watch the clips at scholastic.com/harrypotter. There will also be the requisite stilt-walkers and fire-eaters, wand-making and face-painting, jugglers and magicians, and, of course, a 20-foot, automated Whomping Willow."
Well, that description just sealed the deal, but I am a bit trepidatious about the whole thing with my two little ones. I am hoping that the early start (5 PM) will attract my-size tykes, and the REAL partying will start once we have left. You KNOW I've GOT to make one of those videos...and I have just put my battery in the charger for my camera. I wish I was more of a put-together-a-costume-real-fast person, but I think my hot-red wig a la TONKS will have to do, and my little girls will bring their magic wands that the Easter Bunny brought them last spring. That's good.
I found this link on my cousin's blog...so I took the test:
The sorting hat says that I belong in Gryffindor!
Said Gryffindor, "We'll teach all those with brave deeds to their name."
Students of Gryffindor are typically brave, daring, and chivalrous.
Famous members include Harry, Ron, Hermione, Albus Dumbledore (head of Hogwarts), and Minerva McGonagall (head of Gryffindor).
