"My life is complete!"

Three words: Harry Potter Exhibition.
This was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. The Exhibition is traveling around the world and (supposedly) only stops in three cities in the U.S. The staff are also traveling with the exhibit and I think they have been traveling for a year now. We went up to Seattle to see it at the Pacific Science Center. We got to see costumes used in the movies, props, character's wands... It was amazing! We got to pull up mandrakes and throw quaffles into goals. The attention to detail for these movies is really impressive. I actually read the O.W.L. test and a quiz given by Professor Lockheart. The bulletin board in the Gryffindor Common Room has real flyers and ads. I got to sit in Hagrid's chair, and let me tell you, that thing is HUGE! This exhibit was fantastic and easily one of the best Christmas presents I have ever received!
