For those baffled by the mystical maths, Harry came to life in 1997 with The Philosopher’s Stone, but he was actually born to J.K Rowling back in 1990, apparently on a crowded train… fortunately only in her mind!
So here it is: 2018. We are fresh into the New Year and the festive parties are still alive and kicking in our memories. Does that mean we need to calm down and throw in the towel? Of course not.
