First annual Harry Potter day: May 2nd, 2013

Below is the official statement released by Prime Minister David Cameron:

"There is no doubt in anyone's mind that Ms. Rowling's work has had a huge and undeniable impact on the literary world as we know it. In order to fully commemorate and immortalize her work, we have to decided to officially declare May 2nd as an official international holiday, in honor of the date that protagonist Harry Potter conquered the main antagonist of the series, Lord Voldemort. We hope that children and adults alike will be reminded of Harry Potter’s strong and courageous character on this day, as well as of the true credit that Ms. Rowling has made to society.”
