Drop Everything, It’s Gryffindor Pride Day and Here Are The Tweets to Prove it

Hey! Gryffindor enthusiast here. I know what you’re thinking: “but are you actually a Gryffindor?” Yes. No, I did not take every sorting hat quiz available on the internet multiple times until I got Gryffindor. Yes, I took the *official* Pottermore quiz, and yes, I got Gryffindor the first time. Settled.

It’s no secret that all Hogwarts Houses have dedicated members with the pride of their loyalties running deep through their veins. Every house has a day to shine, and it’s time for Gryffindors near and far to unite and celebrate. Clearly, I have a lot of love for my house. But trust me, I’m not the only one. Check out these tweets by members of Gryffindor House expressing their pride.

How to Have Hufflepuff Spirit During COVID-19

If you’re a Hufflepuff, today is your day. If you’ve been sorted into this house, you are dedicated, honest, hard-working and loyal. Most Hufflepuffs correspond to the element of earth. So you all probably have some plants to tend to, which is just darling. It’s rough out here for everyone right now, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t celebrate!

Wear your house colors with pride

If you have your robes, wear them to go nowhere. If you don’t have any robes, find whatever you have in yellow and black and slap it on.
