Droves of Harry Potter Fans Showed up at King’s Cross Station Today — Here’s Why

f you're a fan of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series (and let's be honest, who isn't?), then you might know why today's date is so special in the Potter universe.

You might recall, in the last chapter of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry takes his son, Albus Severus, to King's Cross Station in London to leave on the Hogwarts Express.

And because Rowling never leaves out a single, impeccable detail, she actually gave a specific date for those events: today, September 1st, 2017.
