This made me smile but unfortunately it is sad to say that it would probably be true...

15 Ways Hogwarts Would Be Different If It Was In America.

Harry Potter fans on Reddit were asked: "How would a school for magic in the USA differ from Hogwarts?" Here are some of the best answers.



1. Everyone's patronus would be an eagle.
- vada_vada
2. It would be sponsored by Wizards of the Coast and Gatorade.
- scandalousmambots
3. The nurses/healing spells would be privatized so only the upper-class students could afford to use them.
- tempolevy
4. Avada Kedavra would be a constitutional right, but you can only use it if you pass a background check, and then only for self defense, or for hunting.
- Thetomas
5. They wouldn't teach defense against the dark arts, because "the only 100% defense against the dark arts is abstinence from all magic".
- TeelxFlame

6. Obviously the mail would be delivered by eagles.
- Azimuth2888
7. Quidditch would be renamed and a new sport named Quidditch that has nothing to do with the original sport would be created and become the national game for the wizard school(s).
- spirafortunae
8. It would be under constant harassment from Christian fundamentalists.
- KubrickIsMyCopolit
9. You would need to take out massive loans to attend.
- hobbeswasright_
10. Students wouldn't go shopping for their crap in some back alley marketplace; there would be a Mall of Wizardry with department stores. Or perhaps a Witch-Mart.
- accaris

11. Care of Magical Creatures would cover Sasquatch and jackalopes.
- Mule2go
12. Bigger portions of food at the banquets.
- skipweasel
13. Protests demanding that everyone have the same looking Patronus so as not to make someone feel less important.
- spamjam09
14. The school would be under a pervasive sense of surveillance, with a zero tolerance policy for illicit magic on the back of every student's mind. You could get suspended just for pointing your finger in the shape of a wand; forget actually casting anything outside of the classroom. You think the administration would go 5 years completely ignoring the rise of radical Dark Lord fanatics? Anyone who even sneezed and it sounded like Voldemort would be ratted out by their peers and placed on a No Broomstick list.
- accaris
15. Ron could not afford to go.

I like the Avada Kedavra thing, and the Quidditch thing. super grin

At one point, some big US director (possibly Stephen Spielberg) wanted to film the series on an American campus.

It would never have worked....

Or at least it would have been a different series entirely. JK would probably would have had a fit. As would have practically all the readers, including the American ones.
