Test: Which Family Would You Be in If You Were in the Harry Potter World

year ago

In childhood, many of us wanted to get into the magic world of Harry Potter: get a letter from Hogwarts and study at the legendary school. Some people imagined themselves as brave guys from Gryffindor, some — as cunning kids of Slytherin, and others preferred Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.

We at Bright Side are grown-ups, but we still want to get our owl with a letter. And we’re wondering: if our childhood dreams came true, which family would we be born into? We decided to make a test to find out.
