Harry Potter Weekends--love them. Funny, we own the movies, but something about knowing I can just turn on the TV and there they'll be--Harry, Ron, and Hermione--enjoying friendship and battling clear-cut evil with clear-cut good. I recall the wonderful magic of the books and think of unanswered questions. Snape--did he ever have moments of happiness since he lost Lily, and since she died? He's one of the most altruistic fictional characters since Jean Valjean. How does Harry reconcile his love for his father with the knowledge that his father cruelly bullied Snape? He names his sons after both of them.
