You can get an official sorting from Pottermore, try any number of BuzzFeed quizzes, or just declare "I'm a Ravenclaw!" out loud and hope that people believe you.

Yes, the Etsy store Muggle Library Candles is now taking preorders for a candle (priced at $14 plus shipping) that will change color as it burns to reveal your Hogwarts house!

Some lucky Potter fans have already purchased their candles and posted glowing (get it???) reviews.

Since all of the seller's candles are hand-poured and this item is in high demand, the store is currently only taking preorders for you'll have to wait a bit.
