I speak from experience when I say that, because even though I read one of the books when I was a kid, I've never seen any of the movies, but I still know what a Hufflepuff is. And a Slytherin, a Ravenclaw and a Gryffindor.

Are you a Ravenclaw?
Because the majority of Illinois Harry Potter fans are too!
Maybe you're reading this from Wisconsin, you're probably a Gryffindor.
Any chance you arrived here from Nebraska? You're likely a Hufflepuff.
Or, maybe, just maybe, you're a Slytherin from Michigan (which sounds pretty amazing.)
And if you're thinking, 'Michelle you're so wrong! I'm a Slytherin in Illinois!' well that's not too far fetched, based on their study of each state's Hogwarts House split.
