September 1, 2017 is a VERY important day.

Today is a very important day in the Harry Potter universe. Fans of the beloved books and film series are celebrating September 1, 2017 with the hashtag #19yearslater. 

J.K. Rowling shared a message reminding her 12 million Twitter followers why today was so special. 

In the epilogue of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, we learn that Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Ginny have all gathered at King's Cross station to send their kids off to school on the Hogwarts express. 

The epilogue is titled '19 Years Later' (meaning 19 years after the defeat of Voldemort in 1998).

September 1, 2017 is the day Harry sends his son, Albus Severus Potter, to Hogwarts for the first time. Real life has finally caught up with the books and it's a bittersweet day for Harry Potter fans everywhere. 

Some fans even headed to King's Cross station in London to celebrate the momentous day.

In the midst of all the '19 Years Later' feels, J.K. Rowling didn't forget to show some love to the stage production, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, which picks up right where the epilogue left us.


Good luck, Albus! Let's try and have a quiet school year, yeah?
