Ah, the end of August vastly approaches. For Muggles, that means the beginning of another boring school year filled with subjects such as Math, English, Gym, and much more. However, for witches and wizards, the end of August can’t come fast enough. September 1st is so much more then the beginning of another month; it is the beginning of another grand year at Hogwarts (I can already hear the Hogwarts choir now)
Time to get on board the Hogwarts Express, where your friends and the snack cart await! (Just don’t let a house-elf shut down the barrier of Platform 9 and 3/4)
Once you arrive at Hogwarts, you will be directed to the Great Hall, where the Sorting Ceremony will commence. For those who have been to Hogwarts previous years, just don’t laugh too hard at the nervous faces as the Sorting Hat is placed upon the first years’ heads!
Once you have been sorted, you will be lead up to your Dormitories by your house Prefects. Once you get a night of rest, your classes shall commence. Just don’t blow anything up on your first day, some students are notorious for that! 😉
No matter what obstacles you may face this year, remember to make friends. Heck, even expand your horizons and get to know people in other the other three houses!
