20 years ago, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was first published and changed the way millions of kids, and even adults, looked at the world.
A young, bespectacled boy went on the path to be a wizard and took us on the most magical journey over a course of 10 years. When we knew the magic would continue to enthrall us through the big screen, the joy was equivalent to having received one of those coveted letters from an owl (to whosoever is listening, still waiting for my owl!).
But the last time that Harry, Ron and Hermione made us believe in the power of friendship, adventure and butterbeer through their on screen antics was 6 years ago, and yet the love never seems to diminish.
Because as every person who cried for Hedwig, adored Hagrid, loved Dobby and admired Dumbledore will tell you, ‘Always’ wasn’t just for Severus, it was for each and every one of us.
And now we have a brilliant reason to pick our stack of Harry Potter and enjoy that brilliance all over again (not that we ever need a reason to!).
To celebrate 20 years of release of the first book – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by Bloombury, fans were asked to share their most memorable moments from the books.
The results were compiled in a beautiful and haunting video that help relive the sheer joy and happiness that J.K. Rowling brought into our lives 20 years back.

Hogwarts will indeed always be there to welcome us back!
