Wizards and Witches of Halloween

A few weeks ago I saw Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. It was good for an adaptation, but not as good as the books. The cast was great, though. There was John Cleese from Monty Python, the Dowager Countess from Downton Abbey, and Alan Rickman from Galaxy Quest and Quigley Down Under. Harry Potter is a boy who lived with his step parents which are mugles ,(Mugles: Non-magic folk, humans), and then found out, well as Hagrid put it, "You're a wizard, Harry." Soon, he is off to Hogwarts School of Magic and Wizardry, where he meets Hermiony and Ron, his two best friends. But his real parents weren't mugles, they were wizards. A bad wizard named Voldimort, (sorry, I meant He Who Must Not Be Named) killed his parents and left him with a lightning scar on his forehead. There are four houses at Hogwarts, Gryphindor, Slitherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw. Harry meets a kid called Drako Malfoy. He is the bully of the school. They also play a game called Quiditch. It's kind of like basketball, but with three balls, broom sticks and baseball bats.You put two of the three balls in a hoop. If you are from Gryphindor, you go to Slytherin's hoops, and vice versa. The third ball is caught by the seeker, who looks for the speedy flying ball and catches it. When the third ball is caught, the game ends. He has an owl named Hedwig that sends and receives letters and presents. Harry finds out that Voldimort is coming back to life to kill him, and with the help of Ron and Hermiony, stops him. There's more but it doesn't apply to the plot. So, see you later in another blog. Bye.
