Hagrid and Magic
So the twins and I read Harry Potter together on a continual loop. (What? It makes us happy.) And this is the question I had this week.
When Ron’s wand snaps in half in Book Two because he crashes into a tree, it ceases to work properly and can’t be repaired.
When Harry’s wand snaps in half in Book Seven, it ceases to work, can’t be repaired, and while he saves the pieces out of affection, it’s worthless.
In Book One, when they’re in Ollivander’s, Hagrid confirms that they snapped his wand in half when he was kicked out of Hogwarts. We also know that the wand pieces are concealed inside the pink umbrella, and he uses it to do magic quite well including giving Dudley a pig tail and rowing the boat with magic.
So why does Hagrid’s wand still work despite being in two pieces? Any thoughts?
