We want to hear about it...
Hello! My name is Judy and I will be talking about Harry Potter. Some of you might know that I love Harry Potter (my group) and I will teach you (or just tell you) about people called, "Muggles". I, in fact am not a muggle because I, um, lets just say I know my spells and know how to make potions.. *cough* Anyways, Muggle is another word for "Non-Magic People". Muggles can also be described as people who do not have any magical blood in them. Since "Muggle" refers to a person who is a member of the non-magical community, Muggles are simply ordinary human beings rather than witches and wizards. According to the author, J. K. Rowling, a quarter of the annual Hogwarts intake have two non-magical parents; there have also been some children known to have been born to one magical and one non-magical parent. Which they are called "Half-Bloods", I will talk about Half-Bloods in another blog. The most prominent Muggle-born in the Harry Potter series is Hermione Granger, who had two Muggles of unspecified names as parents. A witch or wizard with all magical heritage is called a pure-blood. I'll make a blog about pure-bloods as well. In the Harry Potter books, non-magical people are often portrayed as foolish, sometimes befuddled characters, who are completely ignorant of the Wizarding world that exists in their midst. If, by unfortunate means, non-magical people do happen to observe the working of magic, the Ministry of Magic sends Obliviators to cast Memory Charms upon them causing them to forget the event. Obliviators are people who erases memories. Well, they use a Charm called, "Obliviate". I'll make like, a whole list of Charms and Characters too. Whoops sorry getting off task ;-;.. Some Muggles, however, know of the wizarding world. These include Muggle parents of magical children, such as Hermione Granger's parents, the Muggle Prime Minister (and his predecessors), the Dursley family (Harry Potter's non-magical and only living relatives), and the non-magical spouses of some witches and wizards. J.K Rowling has stated she created the word "Muggle" from "mug", an English term for someone who is easily fooled. She added the "-gle" to make it sound less demeaning and more "cuddly". So, that's all I know about muggles, and I''ll see you in my next blog about, Half-Bloods. Bye :) -Judy
