Keep sharing your fantastic videos, photos and pictures displaying your house pride to help earn one million points for your house – there are only two days left to take part.
Don’t forget to tag using #GryffindorPride, #RavenclawPride, #SlytherinPride or #HufflepuffPride.
Need some inspiration? Take a look at some of yesterday’s spellbinding submissions:
I'm a hufflepuff and proud with these hand painted Hufflepuff nails! I'm really happy with how they turned out! How will you show your #HufflepuffPride? • #housepride #hufflepuff #badger #hufflepuffnails #hogwarts #harrypotter #magic #pottermore #hogwartsschoolofwitchcraftandwizardry #fandoms #fandom #fangirl
We’re gloomier than Hans the Augurey to see the final day of ‘A Celebration of Harry Potter’ arrive. We’ve seen a rainbow of house colours over the past two days, and some dazzling poses in the moving photographs created at our booth.
You can still help your house earn one million points by sharing your own images and videos using #GryffindorPride, #RavenclawPride, #SlytherinPride or #HufflepuffPride. If you’re at ‘A Celebration of Harry Potter’, make sure you take a stroll over to our booth and have your photo taken in your Hogwarts common room.
We’ll be counting up your creative contributions and announcing the winning house this Thursday, February 5.

Sadly all good things must come to an end, and as we pack up our booth and head home from 'A Celebration of Harry Potter' in Orlando, we're wishing we had Hermione's Time-Turner to experience it all over again!
We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who took part in our Proudest House Contest this weekend; we loved seeing your fantastic displays of house pride from both near and far. Once we've counted up submissions from all four houses, we will announce the winning house this Thursday, February 5.
In the meantime, take a look at some more of our favourite moving photographs from the event in Orlando and in our previous post, and keep an eye out for the announcement of the winning house.
We’re guessing you’re all on the edge of your seats to find out which house won, just like we were as we diligently counted up all the contributions from last weekend’s Proudest House Contest (we almost wished we had a Gringotts goblin to help us tally the total…).
Join us in officially congratulating Slytherin as the winners of our Proudest House Contest and the recipients of a magical one million house points on pottermore.com!
Well done and thank you to all houses for such passionate and creative displays of house pride; they were an absolute pleasure to behold!
In recognition of the superbly creative and imaginative efforts from all houses across the weekend, we’d like to award some additional house points…
Daring and adventurous displays of #GryffindorPride means that Gryffindor will be awarded 230,000 house points, thanks to submitting 23% of the creative contributions.
Excellent, quite excellent! Ravenclaw’s remarkable #RavenclawPride earned them 230,000 house points, as they were neck and neck with Gryffindor with 23% of the creative contributions.
And we mustn’t forget, 170,000 house points to Hufflepuff for their imaginative and creative demonstrations of #HufflepuffPride.
Slytherin, the winning house, was revealed after sharing 37% of the creative contributions. We’re very proud of your incredible #SlytherinPride, snakes!
What a great time we had seeing your wonderful displays of house pride! We hope that you enjoyed creating them as much as we enjoyed viewing them. Last but not least, we’d like to thank you for your comments about the competition on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, your feedback is always appreciated.
To celebrate, we’ve picked out our top five quotes from the Weasley patriarch – let us know your favourite by voting in our poll below, or tell us on Facebook or Twitter
Harp-toting, card-carrying dwarves might not be how you choose to surprise your Valentine today, but there’s plenty of romantic inspiration to be found in the Harry Potter books.
This Valentine’s Day, we want to hear your favourite romantic quotes and moments from the Harry Potter series. Tell us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Instagram using #PottermoreValentine.
Don’t let us keep you – but to add a little romance to your day, how about serenading your love with some Celestina Warbeck:
‘Oh, come and stir my cauldron,
And if you do it right
I’ll boil you up some hot, strong love
To keep you warm tonight.’
That’s sure to do the trick, but if crooning isn’t your style, why not belt out her power ballads instead?
Whether you need help to Master The Basics, want to Improve Your Approach to brewing or Perfect Your Potions technique, there’s something for everyone – from the beginner brewer to the practised potioneer.
Our Potions Fact Sheet will also tell you everything you need to know about the changes we’ve made, from the number of house points each potion is worth to the time it takes to brew them. It could help you put a bit more strategy in your potion brewing and boost your place on the Potions Class Leaderboard.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also giving you a new potion to practice with – Zygmunt Budge’s Beautification Potion.
Hurry over to pottermore.com and examine your Book of Potions to discover the ingredients for a dazzling day.
‘Ron picked up a green bean, looked at it carefully and bit into a corner.
‘Bleaaargh – see? Sprouts.’
They had a good time eating the Every-Flavour Beans. Harry got toast, coconut, baked bean, strawberry, curry, grass, coffee, sardine and was even brave enough to nibble the end off a funny grey one Ron wouldn’t touch, which turned out to be pepper.’

From the disgusting (fish, phlegm, troll bogies and tripe) to the delicious (chocolate, cherry, marshmallow and marmalade), every mouthful is a risk when it comes to Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans. In celebration of Ron’s birthday today, we’ve a present he would certainly relish: you can now earn our new Bertie Bott’s Collectors Badge by finding 35 Every-Flavour Beans on pottermore.com. If you’ve a sweet-tooth you may already have discovered 30, but we’ve just hidden five new flavours in Moments across the site – can you sniff them all out?
To get you started, here’s a little hint to help you find and figure out the flavour of one of the new beans: it’s delicious (although not quite Drooble’s) and its flavour is Moste Potente…
Don’t forget, if you’re super savvy and have completed every Moment on the site so far, take a peek at your Moment progress bar, as it may help you hunt down those missing Beans.
