Even Muggles Can Make Money With a Little Magic

It’s hard to believe, but after ten long years, the “Harry Potter” film franchise has finally come to a close with the “Deathly Hallows: Part 2.”  Having shattered the midnight box office record and crossing the $1 billion mark over the weekend, the last “Harry Potter” movie has left a lightning bolt scar on all of us.  A scar of excitement, a scar of grief, but most of all, a scar containing fond memories of a magical world that captivated us all.

Call me a sinner, but I never read the “Half-Blood Prince” or the “Deathly Hallows.”  Despite that, I’ve seen all the movies and it’s sad to see them come to a close.  Harry Potter is a name that most of us have grown up with.  I distinctly remember my brother bringing home the first book of the series, the “Sorcerer’s Stone,” back when I was in kindergarten.  I asked him so many questions about the story, the characters and, of course, the number of pages.

Now in 2011, the books have all been written, the movies are over and there isn’t much more to Harry’s story–as far as we know.  Hopefully, the world of “Harry Potter” will live on through J.K. Rowling’s recently launched website, Pottermore.  But until then, we can only hope that Harry Potter and the lessons that Rowling taught through him will continue to live on.
