Harry Potter fans stretch out all across the world. I myself am a huge fan, but going to world wide Harry Potter events are so far out of my budget that I could not even consider it.
However Harry Potter, like I said is everywhere. We on Long Island
have our very own Harry Potter meeting group. Yep, thats right, anyone
can join, and it is absolutely free.
Basically this group gets together and will discuss everything from
the movie to the actual actors. It gives people a chance to meet up with
other fans of the book and movie. The group has their meetings set up
in Hicksville, New York, the site gives information on new members, and
new meetings and events. For more information on this group, and to sign
up simply visit http://harrypotter.meetup.com/480/?gj=sj5.
That's not all though, Harry Potter fans can join a Harry Potter Party
to celebrate the premier of the movie. All you have to is visit www.potterparties.com.
There are over 5,000 Potter parties . You can search for them on the
site by simply adding your city and state to see if there are any
parties going on in your area. Borders will also be hosting a Midnight
Magic party where there will be games, treats, and giveaways. This
particular party start at 9pm on July 15th. Barnes and Nobles will also
be hosting Harry Potter party's at 660 of their stores. There will be
games, give aways, and story time. For more information visit www.borders.com and www.barnesandnoble.com.
You may also visit http://childrensbooks.about.com/od/whatsnewhot/a/hpparty.htm for information on planning and hosting your very own Harry Potter 6 and 7 party.
Fun Facts about Harry Potter and Sayville, Long Island New York:
to see where the author has made references to Harry Potter and
Sayville on Long Island New York. Read about conspiracy theory's about
Sabrina The Teenage Witch and Harry Potter, and how some feel that the
whole Harry Potter concept has something to do with homosexuality? Okay! Whatever, moving on...
The Harry Potter Virus:
Man we can't get enough of him, it's just making us sick. Maybe not
literately physically sick. But as of now there is an actual Harry
Potter computer virus going around, and Harry Potter fans are warned to
not open any emails containing any information regarding the book. The
email claims to have book 6 available to download. This may be
convincing to some fans, as they hit download, what they are really
getting is the virus. In desktop a file called
'HarryPotter-TheDeathlyHallows.doc'. For more information on the Harry
Potter virus visit http://www.vnunet.com/vnunet/news/2193147/harry-potter-worm-claims-young.
I was also surprised to come into an article written by Judy Blume
trying to make statements about Harry Potter could be considered evil.
