Happy Birthday to Harry James Potter, who turns 37 years of age today. Potter, known to the Wizarding community as "The Boy Who Lived," celebrates his birthday today with his wife Ginny (neé Weasley) and their children James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna.

Potter is said to be proud of his son Albus, who will join James at Hogwarts next month for his first year at the Academy.

19 years ago, Potter, along with Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, led the way at the Battle of Hogwarts, destroying the Dark Lord Voldemort's final horcruxes and killing the dark wizard, who has remained dead since. Potter worked his way up through the Auror department at the Ministry of Magic and has held the title of Head Auror at the Ministry for the last ten years.

Born to Lily and James Potter, Harry Potter was orphaned as a baby yet rose through the wizarding ranks to fulfil prophecy and become one of the greatest wizards of his age.

Happy Birthday, Harry, and Many Happy Returns.

P.S. Happy birthday to real-life creator of Harry Potter, the Wizarding World, and their many wonderful adventures, J.K. Rowling. Thanks for the magic!
