The Great Hall is draped in yellow and black today in honor of Hufflepuff House’s triumph in the final Pottermore House Cup. Helga’s house reigns over the other three, with Slytherin taking second place, Ravenclaw at third, and the Gryffindor lions roaring in at last place. This was the second time Hufflepuff House won the Cup, and with Hogwart’s most humble house at the top, it was a wonderful end to the tradition.
In celebration, Pottermore released a graphic on their Twitter, honoring six famous Hufflepuffs, including Bridget Wenlock, Newt Scamander, Pomona Sprout, Cedric Diggory, Nymphadora Tonks, and of course, the House’s founder, Helga Hufflepuff.
In fact, J.K. Rowling responded to Pottermore’s tweet with the message below…
