I have a confession to make. I haven’t seen all of the Harry Potter movies. Which is why I wanted to do a Harry Potter Movie Marathon!
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve read all the books. And I’ve listened to all the audiobooks about a dozen times each. I know my patronus, and what house I’m in, and what kind of wand I would have. I just haven’t seen the movies. In a way that makes it obvious that my husband completes me he happens to have all the movies on DVD. Since we are doing a no spend September it made pretty much perfect sense to have a Harry Potter Movie Marathon.
Turns out you can’t really realistically watch all the movies in one day! The total run time is almost 20 hours! Although that does include the credits, which lets be honest no one is watching! But you can do it over a long weekend – starting with the first movie on Friday night and finishing the last movie on Sunday!
Some of the ways we made this even more fun were by making Harry Potter snacks. Obviously, we had butterbeer, but we also had butterbeer popcorn. Which is my new favorite And we got fun themed shirts. Really we got them for our trip to Universal Studios Florida in March. But we can pretend!
I want to have another marathon so that I can make even more fun snacks. Seriously, Pinterest is packed full of ideas which all look delicious. There are also lots of variations for different kinds of drinking games or workouts to do while you watch the movies. This may have to become the theme for our Halloween party!
In the meantime, I’d love to know! Which movie is your favorite? And what house are you in? We’re in Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff! Although my sweet husband likes to prevent he’s in Slytherin the sorting hat doesn’t lie! And if you don’t know what house you are in you can find out here.
