One of the best things about being obsessed with Harry Potter is that, despite JK Rowling putting her quill down on the last book over ten years ago, the amazing fan theories mean that there's still always new things to be learned about the wizarding world.
So ten points to Gryffindor and extra sherbet lemons for the Potterhead who's come up with this bonkers but brilliant idea, which magically connects the legendary Deathly Hallows with err... the Dursleys of all people.
The Dursleys are pretty much the WORST and we still don't really get why Dumbledore left Harry on their doorstep all those years ago. Not only did they basically treat him as a family slave, but they also gave him the most terrible birthday presents ever.
In Harry's first year, they sent him a fifty-pence piece. In his second year, they gave him a toothpick. In his fourth year, he got a tissue, which somehow feels like the worst one out of all of 'em.
But now Reddit user iShootWithACamera has proposed the theory that each of these gifts actually represent the Deathly Hallows: the fifty-pence piece is the Resurrection Stone, the toothpick is the Elder Wand, and the tissue is the Invisibility Cloak.
Alright, so it might sound kind of ridiculous, but they're the only Christmas gifts from the Dursleys that are mentioned in the books, so it's kind of a coincidence. And why would someone bother posting a toothpick unless it MEANT something.
Also, in The Prisoner of Azkaban, Aunt Marge sends Harry a box of dog biscuits for Christmas which, as well as being an obvious insult to Harry, ends up being a foreshadowing for Sirius/Padfoot.
So MAYBE the Dursleys' gifts do something similar. Oh Merlin's beard, who bloody knows. Let us know what you reckon with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
