Anything Can Happen Wednesday (Harry Potter and the American Hogwarts.)

NPR, and many other outlets, reported that the next installment in the Harry Potter universe may include an American Hogwarts.  J.K. Rowling did confirm on Twitter that an American Hogwarts exists, but whether it will appear in the upcoming film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is still in question.

So where do you think it would exist?  Rowling already noted that it is NOT in New York and will have a Native American influence.  I think it should go up for a bid like the Olympics.  Towns in America should present why they would make a good home for the American Hogwarts.  Not only based on history and Native American influences, but what they will do in the future as well. Such as Harry Potter festivals, the renaming of at least one school based on the film which will adhere to a strictly wizard syllabus, and the tendency to refer to any out of towners as Muggles.

Hopefully whoever Rowling chooses will appreciate the honor bestowed upon them and act accordingly.

What do you think should be the criteria for a town being considered for the American Hogwarts?

Look out for further Harry Potter posts throughout the day.

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
