Today we're celebrating the 50th birthday of our favorite ~magical~ author and the 35th birthday of our favorite fictional character!

Warner Bros.

We've all learned some very important lessons from reading the series.

And we probably wouldn't be the same people we are today if we hadn't had Harry Potter in our lives.

So happy birthday, J.K. and Harry!

The Queen took to Twitter to personally thank her fans:

Thank you so much to everyone wishing Harry and me a happy birthday! I'm having a wonderful time in the sun with family and friends. xxxxx
