No shade of Hunger Games, or John Green, or Twilight, we have grown up with the Harry Potter. It made us believe in magic. It's not about three friends defeating the Dark Lord, it's much more than that. Dumbledore taught us that there was life beyond death. Snape showed us what true love is; Luna told us it's okay to be little weird. Molly Weasley came out to be a kickass mother. Sirus and Hagrid taught us to be loyal. Bellatrix depicted how obsession can lead to madness. Dobby taught us to cherish freedom. Neville inspired us stand for the right even if we have to stand against our best friends, even when we're terrified. And the lessons are endless. I don't think anything will ever recapture the sheer scope of mid-aughts Harry Potter craze!
But are we missing something? JK Rowling has very brilliantly played with number seven which most of us failed to notice.
JK Rowling regards seven as a magical number.
"Don't despise little things, they contain tiny miracles!!"
It all started when JK Rowling decided to write seven Harry Potter books. Fans are hoping for another book will be disappointed here. Guys, it's against Witchcraft and Wizardry rules!
Now, let's do some vital calculations. 3 and 4 add to 7. Also, 9, 3, 4 add to 16, which again adds to Mathematics also supports the magical number otherwise Rowling would have deducted 10 points from arithmetic!

So many quiddtich matches played. How many of us paid attention to this? There are seven players in each team in a Quiddtich match and, as a Griffindor seeker Harry had caught 7 golden snitches.
Remember, Barty Crouch Jr hid Moddy in his own trunk. Remember, the opening of giant trunk? Yes, there were 7 locks on Prof. Moddy's trunk.
There were seven secret passages out of the school by the Marauder's Map. Wait,remember to say mischief managed!
