Today’s a big day for Harry Potter fans who still want to hold onto a little piece of their favorite book series. To be exact, September 1, 2017 is the day that Albus Severus boards the Hogwarts Express for the first time, the exact moment that was covered in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow‘s epilogue.

This is the only part of the series that fans have knowingly shared a timeline with, which is part of what makes it so special. In fact, a lot of people in London have decided to celebrate by going to King’s Cross Station in hopes of running into the expanding Potter family.

Let’s just say the rest of us are a little traumatized that we couldn’t make it.
Never forget the great things that happened on this day.
You know what that means? Teddy and Victoire are snogging.

Now everyone go pick up their copy of The Deathly Hallows and reread the epilogue immediately.
