Hufflepuff Pride Day

Any true Harry Potter fan knows that Hufflepuff is one of the four houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was founded by Helga Hufflepuff. This house is considered the most inclusive of the four houses and values patience, loyalty, hard work, and dedication.

It is a house that does not place value on any particular aptitude its members may possess. It is represented by a badger and symbolizes the Earth element, with yellow representing wheat and black representing soil.

The values of this house may compel some people to want to join it, and now they can, thanks to Hufflepuff Pride Day. This holiday falls on March 20th and encourages all Hufflepuff fans to come together and sort themselves into this house.

That’s easily done by wearing the house’s colors of yellow and black, enjoying Harry Potter movies, forming a book club dedicated to the series, or simply throwing a Hufflepuff party.

The History of Hufflepuff Pride Day

Since Hufflepuff is a fictional house in a fictional school in the fictional Harry Potter universe, we thought we’d cover the fictional history of the house. Hufflepuff was formed by Helga Hufflepuff.

Helga was born in the 10th century in Wales and was the first to give house-elves a home by bringing them into Hogwarts and protecting them from being abused and mistreated. The values of Hufflepuff very much embodied her values, which included honesty, justice, and loyalty.
