When you got on the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9 3/4, and you were first whisked away to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, you knew that your life would never be quite the same again.

When the name of your house was called out, you were filled with joy and apprehension as you made your way to join your witchcraft and wizardry family.
