Harry Anniversary! 5 Awesome Gifts For Your Potterhead Friend
Fantasy series "Harry Potter" took everyone by storm after it was published on June 26, 1997.
Written by British author J. K. Rowling, the best-selleing book turned into a blockbuster movie about the life and adventure of an English half-blood young wizard Harry Potter along with his friends at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Following the success of the film (which debuted in November 2001), it also launched the career of famous celebrities such as Daniel Radcliffe who played the lead role "Harry Potter," actress/activist Emma Watson who portrayed the Muggle-born witch Hermione Granger, and Rupert Grint as the pure-blood wizard Ron Weasley.
The seventh and final installment of the book adaptation was titled "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" and was featured in two-length parts.
Part one of the films was launched in November 2010 while the second cinematic part was released in July 2011.
With a total of eight films, the "Harry Potter" production budget was said to be $1.2 billion with a revenue of a whopping $7.7 billion.
It is evident how the public accepted and loved the fantasy series.

Although it is only a fictional sport, the students from Hogwarts were fans of the popular but dangerous game called Quiditch. It played by witches and wizards while riding flying broomsticks.
Just like an ordinary game -- except the flying brooms -- the purpose is to score more points than your opponents. Each goal is considered 10 points and catching the Golden Snitch is worth 150 points. The team who first catches the Snitch wins the game.
