History of Hufflepuff Pride Day
Helga Hufflepuff is the founder of the Hufflepuff household. Born in Wales during the 10th century, Helga helped found the Hogwarts school alongside her companions. Her household isn’t defined by how smart, cunning, or brave they are, but by their willingness to learn. Valuing loyalty, honesty, and fair-play. Helga is known to help bring witches and wizards together no matter their background. One a minor but important note, her kindness is also shown in her actions throughout her life, as she became the first witch to bring the house-elves to Hogwarts and give them a home, safe from abuse and mistreatment.
Hufflepuff Pride Day started through the Pottermore website as a way for people to celebrate the house known for its pride. The website was designed by the author J.K Rowling, who wrote the novels and helped direct the Harry Potter series. People all over the world who are fans of the Wizarding World express pride of their household by wearing their house colors and celebrating with friends and family how much they love the Harry Potter universe. Alongside Slytherin, Gryffindor, and Ravenclaw, the Hufflepuff household is a place where you can have fun to cheer people on in sports, having crazy cooking nights in the kitchen, and having a strong sense of dedication in everything you do.
