Celebrating Gryffindor house pride day

This week is house pride week and we are dedicating a day to each of the houses, starting with Gryffindor. We will be using the standings of the last Pottermore House Cup, which means that today is Gryffindor’s house pride day, as it’s the house that won the last House Cup.

As house pride is all about celebrating the pride of belonging to your house, we’ve created some themed artwork for you to display on your Facebook or Twitter account if you have one. We have also organised some polls and trivia for you to enjoy, and we’ll be sharing some of the great house-themed fan art from the Pottermore Galleries.

But it’s also down to you to make this celebration great: Share your tweets with the hashtag #GryffindorPride #HousePride and we will retweet our favorites and feature them here on the Insider!
