Gryffindor Pride Day

Observed annually on March 22nd, Gryffindor Pride Day is a holiday for people who have been sorted into this particular house of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It’s a house that represents some of the most prized values in the Harry Potter universe.

These values include courage, determination, and bravery. It also happens to be Harry Potter’s house, which has helped draw even more people to it, especially in our universe.

The name of this house comes from the word “Gryphon,” which is a legendary creature that has the body, back legs, and tail of a lion, the head and wings of an eagle, and sometimes eagle claws for the front feet. It’s an apt symbol for a proud house.

The History of Gryffindor Pride Day

For anyone who doesn’t know the history of this holiday, let us take a look into the Harry Potter universe and find its origins. The House of Gryffindor was created by one of the founders of Hogwarts School, Godric Gryffindor.

He created a house that did not discriminate against wizards and Muggles and a house that valued courage, grit, and determination above all else. This holiday was created to remember this house’s achievements and to help everyone else who shares these values to sort themselves into it.
