But let’s not forget another important Harry Potter character celebrating a birthday this weekend: Neville Longbottom. Neville may not have turned out to be the chosen one, but he still made a huge difference in the fight against Voldemort and was always there for his friends. Tied together by prophecy and friendship, these two characters celebrate their birthdays just one day apart, and both turn an unbelievable 36 years old this year.
