Slytherin Pride Day

Slytherin Pride Day is a holiday that’s observed on the 21st of March each year. Like the other three holidays that celebrate the other three houses of the fictional school Hogwarts, this holiday is dedicated to everything Slytherin. That means that Harry Potter fans who are observing this holiday make sure they embody the character of this house.

What is the character of this house? Well, Slytherins tend to be cunning, strong leaders, shrewd, ambitious, and achievement-oriented. They also tend to be focused on self-preservation. With that said, fans of this house can wear green and silver on this day, be sneaky like a snake or do something that’s connected to water such as swimming.

The History Of Slytherin Pride Day

Slytherin House was created by Salazar Slytherin and he asked the Sorting Hat to sort out students that possessed the attributes that he prized above all others. These attributes include ingenuity, ambition, and cunning.

The snake is the animal of this house and its colors are silver and green. We can only assume that a fictional character from this fictional house created Slytherin Pride Day.
