Harry Potter Solves Our Halloween Problems

Halloween debates went down to the wire with an especially big struggle for my daughter: “I want to be a cat, AND I want to be Hermione.”

Conveniently, we are reading the Harry Potter series with the kids, and I pointed out when Hermione mistakenly put a cat hair instead of a human hair in her polyjuice potion, she became a cat.

Problem solved!

No more happy smiles by the creepy gravestones. Sad for everyone involved.
