Birthdays

Two days after Christmas every year (for the past.. 20 some odd years) comes the celebration of another important birth..

OK, come on! This is the 6th year I've had to come up with these openers, cut Andrew some Slack!

Anyway back to the birthday girl.  The whole city of New York is so excited it decided to have a blizzard tonight in her honor! Enjoy that!

Give her some love in the comments here today - I'll start. Leaky would not be Leaky without Melissa, and I wouldn't be the person I am without her either. Have a great birthday, Melis!

Skip the blizzard? Oh noooo, it’s wonderful! Can’t wait to try out the snowshoes we got for Christmas tomorrow, as soon as that bitter cold wind dies down! Greetings to Melissa from a fellow New Yorker (just up the Thruway at Exit 18) who is hoping that you are enjoying your snow days as well. Many thanks for all you do to make this fabulous Potterhead community possible.

Hope you’ve had a great birthday Melissa. Thank you so much for Harry, A History; I finally finished reading the book… Loved it! Brought back some great memories, and even made a few more. Thanks for making Leaky a really great HP site also.

Hi Melissa,

I just finished reading your book on the train to work this morning. Somehow, over the past three days, I have constanly been fighting tears back, mainly in the happier parts of the book. I remember being terribly frustrated because of the release date (July 21st is my country’s national holiday, there were NO midnightreleases, I was very lucky that one bookshop in my city decided to open at 15.00…) and felt very left out. You bet I will make sure I will be at a huge party for the very, very last movie to come out.

One day late, but still I hope your birthday was happy enough that its memory will help you conjure a patronus in dire need.
