This is the magical way Facebook is celebrating 20 years of Harry Potter

Here's one way to forget that, yes, the beloved Harry Potter series is 20 years old: go to Facebook.

The social network is offering a simple yet magical tribute to J.K. Rowling's epic tale whenever you share a status update including "Harry Potter."

It also works if you type any one of the houses in Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.

All will appear with a unique color and reveal a little surprise when a Facebook users clicks on any of the words. 

Twenty years ago, the book Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was released, marking the debut of the boy wizard. The book would land in the U.S. a year later with a revisited title: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
