#MicroblogMondays 60: Harry Potter and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
This weekend we went to a second Harry Potter festival. This time the weather cooperated, so we got to wear our Ravenclaw robes. This festival was a lot more crowded. You’ve never seen so many wizards in one place.
We lucked out that our visit to Philadelphia coincided with the Rosenbach Museum in Center City displaying the original copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for the 150th anniversary of the book. It’s the handwritten copy that Dodgson presented Alice Liddell when she asked him to write down the story, complete with the original, pre-Tenniel illustrations.
It was very special that we got to see the book the day before St. Frideswide’s Day, who is the patron saint of Oxford and her story (and the church in Oxford connected to her) are entwined in the story of the book. We celebrate St. Frideswide’s Day every year with scones and tea, which we’ll have after the kids come home from school.
What is the most amazing thing you’ve seen this week?
P.S. I wrote about St. Frideswide before this with the Alice tour of Oxford.
