The Weasley twins, Fred and George, have always been fan favorites in the Harry Potter universe. Their mischievous antics and comedic relief added a unique flavor to the story. Now, in 2023, let’s take a look at what the Weasley twins have been up to since the end of the series.
Early Life and Hogwarts Years
Fred and George were born on April 1, 1978, and grew up in the Weasley family home, The Burrow. The twins attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and were sorted into Gryffindor house. They quickly became known for their pranks and jokes, which often landed them in trouble with their professors.
In their fifth year, Fred and George dropped out of Hogwarts to start their own joke shop, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. Their business quickly became successful and provided a much-needed outlet for the wizarding community after the second wizarding war.
After the war, the Weasley twins continued to run Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes and expanded their business to include products for the Ministry of Magic. They also became active members in the rebuilding efforts of the wizarding world.
In 2021, the Weasley twins were honored with the Order of Merlin, First Class for their contributions to the wizarding community.
Fred and George were known for their close relationship with their family, particularly their younger siblings Ron and Ginny. They also had a strong bond with Harry Potter, who they considered to be a brother.
Both twins married in 2006 – Fred to Angelina Johnson and George to his Hogwarts sweetheart, Angelina’s twin sister, Alicia. They each have two children.
The Legacy of the Weasley Twins
The Weasley twins left a lasting impact on the wizarding world through their humor, business, and loyalty to their loved ones. Their legacy continues to inspire future generations of young witches and wizards.
As we look back on their story in 2023, we remember the laughter and joy they brought to the Harry Potter universe. The Weasley twins will always hold a special place in our hearts.
From their Hogwarts years to their successful business and personal lives, the Weasley twins have left a legacy that will never be forgotten. They are a reminder that even in the darkest times, laughter and humor can bring hope and light.
