Harry Potter death commemoration sweeps the Internet


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: This is awesome. Dedicated fans of Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling’s legendary character are planning a moment of silence at 3 p.m.today to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the death of Harry’s parents, Lily and James, who died on this day defending their infant son from Lord Voldemort.

That’s why “RIP Lily and James Potter” became a trending topic early this morning on Twitter as Potter fans rallied in support of the deceased literary characters.

“One hour Twitter silence in honour of James & Lily Potter begins now. RIP James and Lily Potter,” types @JoRowlingNet.

THR has a solid recap as to why several “Potter” fans are planning an hour of Twitter silence in honor or their beloved characters. Maybe they’ll just be trick-or-treating at that time?

How will you commemorate the anniversary? My suggestion: Watch one of the “Potter” films. It’s far more productive, and entertaining, than moments of virtual silence.
