Today Feb 04, is #HarryPotterBookNight (a Night of Spells) Schools, libraries, bookshops and Community Centres across the world have organised their own events to mark it.
The idea behind things is so to pass on the passion for the Harry Potter series of novels to young readers (those who haven’t yet discovered J.K. Rowling’s famous books), so the books continue to play a big part in popular culture.
This is the second Harry Potter Book Night to take place, and there will be other ongoing events and activities to get involved in over the coming months. At the first event a favourite spell vote was launched.
Here are the results: With over 2700 votes the Expecto patronum spell took first place followed closely by Accio in second place and Wingardium Leviosa in third.
Expecto Patronum is key throughout the entire Harry Potter series of books. It first appears in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and is taught to Harry Potter by Professor Lupin.
The top ten favourite spells is below. Full of inventiveness and cunning, these famous magical incantations protect and challenge Harry and his friends in all sorts of ways.
- Expecto patronum
- Wingardium Leviosa
- Avada Kedavra
