Harry Potter Trivia Excitement

It’s not the tickets that count.

This morning, my eldest daughter – 10 years old – did indeed win four tickets to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II this weekend. But that is not the exciting part. The exciting part is that she got on the radio (CISS FM in Ottawa). For the second time. And this time she got to answer the question. And she got it right.

Yesterday, she was so excited to be “caller number three”, and waited in anticipation as Caller Number One (a 12-year old girl) was given an impossible question to answer. I mean, who knows off the top of their head the maximum speed of a Firebolt 2000 (Did I even get the right model number?)?

And then as Caller Number Two – a full-grown man – was given a no-way-you-can-miss, easy-peasy question. No, Harry did not get his scar falling off a bike or bumping into a wall at Hogwarts, two of the throw-away choices he was given. And my daughter was naturally devastated when she did not even get the chance to try her hand at the question.

Well, today she had the radio station’s number on speed dial on her mother’s phone, and they kept calling and calling and calling and … “Hello, you are Caller Number One. Who am I speaking to?”


She answered the question correctly and won four tickets to see the show.

But it is not the tickets that is the best part – we would go see the movie anyway. It was the chance to participate – the excitement of making it onto the show. And, of course, answering the trivia question correctly.

By the way, the question was “Who was Harry Potter’s Herbology Teacher?”


  1. I am a big fan of the Harry Potter books, all of them are so competent and mysterious. But I didn’t think the movie series were best at all, but they were still great movies. With that, I was pretty excited to see the end of the film franchise, and impressed with the trailers. So I had high expectations. And thankfully it didn’t let you down, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, blew past my already high expectations and I was enthralled!

    The whole movie looked remarkable! The cinematography extremely well done, the art direction was remarkable. The film was beautiful to view, the visuals were spectacular and truly Oscar worthy! The set designers, cinematographers really need to be awarded for their work, because it looks like they spend of time and money on the look of the film.

    The cast of the film was simply wonderful, they should all be applauded too. Emma Watson, as usual is and great and she’ll have a bright career ahead of her. Rupert Grint is pretty much great also, he is a fine actor indeed. Daniel Radcliffe did an excellent job and was very special as Harry Potter. Although I’m sure Ralph Fiennes was the star of the film, he did unbelievable job as the evil, crazy Lord Voldemort, I feel he deserves an Oscar Nomination for his character. The other cast were also great too.

    We all grew up overtime with the series, we followed the adventures of Harry Potter for about 10 years, I think. It seems very weird that there won’t be any more Harry Potter films to search forward too. I most certainly will miss the franchise very much! However I am happy the series got an amazing ending. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II is not only the best film in the series, but it is probably the one of the best films of 2011. Everyone should see this film, even if they just don’t like past Harry Potter films.

    Have a nice day!
