Harry Potter Fans Celebrate September 1st by Hopping On the Hogwarts Express (VIDEO)

The Hogwarts Express has the Twitterverse chattering with delight as Potterheads collectively celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter’s first train ride to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The Hogwarts Express travels from London’s King’s Cross Station to Hogwarts Castle every September 1st, transporting students back to school. Harry’s first trip on the Hogwarts Express is particularly memorable to Potterheads because it was the first time he met best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, among others.

As students all over the world get ready to head back to school, many are probably wishing they could be hanging with Harry eating Pumpkin Pasties and Chocolate Frogs on a train that runs exclusively on magic.
