Hop on the Hogwarts Express to feels-town, because according to author JK Rowling, today would be Harry and Ginny's son, James S Potter's first day at Hogwarts.

I can't control them; it's too sweet! If you're also headed off to Hogwarts today, give him a shout:

Er, or maybe don't. And if you're unlucky enough to be headed back to muggle school today, remember this:

Good luck out there.

Oklahoma City school teacher, Stephanie Stephens really knew how to welcome her students, her entire classroom is Harry Potter themed. Focusing on things from The Sorcerer's Stone, Stephens will be making the entire school year as magical as Hogwarts for her eighth-grade special needs class. Just like Harry, Ron and Hermione, her class will earn points for each of their respective 'Houses'.

"Once the house points jar fills up they get a class reward. My students mean the world to me and I hope my enthusiasm for reading will transfer to each and every one of my kids."

Keep your fingers crossed for Hufflepuff. They deserve a win.

If you need another reminder that time's flat circle will eventually roll over and crush you, it might as well be in the form of Harry Potter news.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the public's introduction to Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as the three precocious, magical children who found adventure, friendship and eventually love in the halls of Hogwarts.

Seriously, 15 years.

You probably have memories of this, don't you? Meaning you are even older than old.

Here's part of the original press release that preceded the filming of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

ATTENTION ALL MUGGLES! Director Chris Columbus and producer David Heyman have discovered their Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from the thousands of children who cast their names into the hat to play the roles. Young actor Daniel Radcliffe will be the film's Harry, with newcomers Rupert Grint and Emma Watson taking on the roles of Ron and Hermione, Harry's best friends at Hogwarts, in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming adaptation of the first in the best-selling series of Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling.

The hashtag #15yearsofDanEmmaRupert has sprung up around the anniversary with people sharing their memories and their appreciation for the wizarding trio.

By the by, this is what they look like now:

And you're probably older. Much older.

Sorry about the reminder that death is hurtling towards you at lightning speed.
