Let’s face it, who doesn’t love a fantastic literary character? We all have our favorites and love them for different reasons. We at Zenni obviously have a special place in our hearts for those special characters who also wear glasses. No frames needing character is dearer to us than Harry Potter. Since it is the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, we knew it would be fun to choose frames we thought represent, some of the four houses traits. Also, if you don’t know which glasses you should choose based on which house you would be sorted into, take the Harry Potter house quizto find which house you would be in or checkout some house info below collected from Pottermore.com
Hufflepuff: Represented by the badger and the colors yellow and black. They were founded by Helga Hufflepuff and find value in hard work and patience. They are also known for their loyalty and fair play. One notable house member is Newt Scamander who wrote “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which makes sense due to their close connection with the earth.
Gryffindor: These lions value courage and bravery, making it no wonder that their colors are scarlet and gold and their element fire. This is a house who thrives on the virtue of determination and was founded by Godric Gryffindor. Obvious notable members are three of our favorite Hogwarts wizards: Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and, of course, Harry Potter.
Ravenclaw: These sky and air house members are represented by an eagle and the colors blue and bronze. Founded by Rowena Ravenclaw, with members such as the unique Luna Lovegood, it is no wonder they are known for their wit, learning, and wisdom. Learning was obviously very important to Rowena, as her motto was, “Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure.”
Slytherin: Possibly one of the more revered of the four houses, Slytherin is represented by the snake and thus often known for producing dark wizards. Not to say all members of this house are “evil.” The Sorting Hat even saw strong Slytherin traits in Harry. Many proud, ambitious, and cunning leaders claim the green and silver colors as their own. Two, in particular, have often been helpful to Harry, Professor Severus Snape and the powerful wizard, Merlin. On the other hand, bullies like Draco Malfoy and Tom Riddle or, as he’s also known, “He- Who-Must-Not-Be-Named,” are also known Slytherins.
