Celebrating Slytherin house pride day

This week is house pride week and we are dedicating a day to each of the houses. As we are using the standings of the last Pottermore House Cup, today is Slytherin’s house pride day.

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 #SlytherinPride and we will Retweet our favourites and feature them here on the insider!
