Rather fittingly, the wonderful Molly Weasley gave birth to two of the most lovable, if not frustrating, pranksters in literature on April 1st (April Fool’s Day, for those unfamiliar with the date’s significance). Identical twins Fred and George Weasley entered the magical world in 1978, meaning that 2016 would mark their 38th birthday.
In honor of the light-hearted, brave, and highly-intelligent brothers, Pottermore posted a highly entertaining infographic, sharing all of the most enlightening facts about Fred and George, from the first time they were mentioned…
‘Fred, you next’, the plump woman said.
‘I’m not Fred, I’m George,’ said the boy. ‘Honestly, woman, call yourself our mother? Can’t you tell I’m George?’
– Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Chapter 6)
…to the all of the crazy inventions they made (which we could only dream of using on April Fool’s day here in the Muggle world). Take a look at their brilliance; you will likely laugh and cry.
