Despite being a big Harry Potter fan, it’s only a couple of months ago that I did the official sorting test on Pottermore. I’d always felt drawn to either Gryffindor or Ravenclaw, but as soon as I was sorted into Hufflepuff I felt really excited about it and began researching more about the house. Here’s why I love being a Hufflepuff!
Hufflepuffs are underestimated
We aren’t the most famous house and we’re definitely overlooked and sneered at in certain quarters (looking at you, Professor Snape). However, that can give us the upperhand. While you’re writing us off, we are out there being good and kind and loyal and generally awesome.
I think Cedric may just be the winner of the good guy award in the whole Potter universe. He was just soooo kindhearted and such a great ambassador for Hufflepuff.
The badger is our emblem
Badgers may look cute and cuddly, but they’re resilient and tenacious. They will protect themselves if they are overlooked and pushed into a corner. A little bit like Hufflepuffs themselves!
We make great friends
Trust me, you want a Hufflepuff in your circle of friends. When you’re going through a rough patch, we’ll be here for you. We’re loyal and good listeners. Don’t think you can’t have fun with us too though, we make fab dinner guests!
