The last English Day in our school was about the Harry Potter’s Saga and I want to talk about the plot of the films, but, only the beginning because I don’t want to be a spoiler. I’m not going to talk only about it, I want to go deep to the four different houses of Hogwarts, the School of Magic.
In the first film we saw a little boy who was living with his uncles in a miserable way. That boy was named Harry Potter, when he started living with his uncles he was growing thinking that his parents died in a human and typical way, but that’s not the truth. Some years went though and one marvellous day, when Harry was at home, one mysterious letter appeared in the post-box. A card letter to Harry, it was the first letter that he had received in his entire life. It was a letter from Hogwarts, one of the most prestigious Schools of Magic. He had problems at home because his uncles didn’t want to tell Harry he was a magician. Some things happened in the film, things that you won’t know if you don’t see the films. (Please, see them.)
When a new witch or magician enters to Hogwarts they have to take a magic and special hat and put it on his/her head, this magic hat knows how to read the personality of the person who has it. The hat has to think about the good and bad things of the new student because he had to assign him/her to one of the four houses. Hogwarts offers four houses for different types of students with the names of the people who founded them: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.
First we have Gryffindor, it was founded by Godric Gryffindor, a brave and honorable magician. The representative colours are gold and red, and they have a lion as an animal representation.
Then we have Hufflepuff, which is for kind and true loyal magicians. It was founded by Helga Hufflepuff and their colours are black and yellow, the animal is a badger.
Ravenclaw has the representation of an eagle and it was founded by Rowena Ravenclaw. It is for intelligent and intellectual magicians. Their colours are blue and bronze.
And last, Slytherin, the green snakes that have a very bad reputation. It was founded by Salazar Slytherin and the representative colours are emerald and silver. Obviously they have a snake as an animal representation of them.
