It's Sept. 1, everyone! You know what that means...

Sorry, we're not talking to Muggles. We know you guys are on regular school buses chugging along to do reading, writing and arithmetic. We're talking to all you wizards and witches out there who are probably reading this on your phone as you rush off to King's Cross to get to platform 9 3/4. It's time to go back to Hogwarts!

J.K. Rowling got the #BacktoHogwarts Twitter celebration really going when she tweeted this emotional message that hit every Harry Potter fan right in the feelings bone:

"I'm in Edinburgh, so could somebody at King's Cross wish James S Potter good luck for me?" she asked. "He's starting at Hogwarts today. #BackToHogwarts"

Harry's son James Sirius Potter is already headed to Hogwarts?! They grow up so fast.

So while in the real world, Potterheads are back in the halls of middle school, high school, college or in our case, the halls of our office building, there are plenty of people on Twitter using the #BacktoHogwarts hashtag to pretend that everyone is on the Hogwarts Express, waiting for the food trolley to come by so we could maybe nab a Chocolate Frog with an Albus Dumbledore trading card.

You might be thinking, "Really? Harry Potter fans are still emotional about Sept. 1 because that's when wizards and witches go back to Hogwarts? After all this time?"

Well, you know what we say to that, right?
