Hogwarts Houses

   As most of you are already aware, there are four houses at Hogwarts and they are Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. If you are a devoted Harry Potter fan, I have no doubt that you already know which house you would be placed in but for those of you who don't know which house you belong in, I have provided descriptions of each house that appear on Harry Potter Wiki and also a link to a website where you can take a quiz that will determine which house you are best suited for.  

Gryffindor is one of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, founded by Godric Gryffindor. Its emblematic animal is the lion, and its colours are scarlet and gold.

"You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart
—The Sorting Hat

Slytherin is one of the four Houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and is traditionally home to students who exhibit such traits as cunning and ambition. Its emblematic animal is the snake and its colours are green and silver.

"Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.
—The Sorting Hat

Ravenclaw is one of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, founded by Rowena Ravenclaw. Members of this house are characterised by their wit, intelligence, creativity, and wisdom. Its house colours are blue and bronze, and its symbol is the eagle.

"Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.
—The Sorting Hat

Hufflepuff is one of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Its founder was the medieval witch Helga Hufflepuff.  Hufflepuff is the most inclusive among the four houses, valuing hard work, patience, friendship and fair play rather than a particular aptitude in its members. Its emblematic animal is the badger, and yellow and black are its colours.
"You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil
—The Sorting Hat

     Here are a few quizzes that you can take to determine which house you belong in. I am most definitely Slytherin. Which house are you in? Let me know which house you're in by posting it in a comment! I love hearing from you!
The sorting hat says that I belong in Slytherin!
