Although he went on to become 'The Boy Who Lived' and father his own wonderful family, Potter's childhood was seriously traumatic and left him being viciously attacked and orphaned as an infant before being packed off to live with a family who treated him with scant regard.
These turbulent beginnings are arguably the saddest part of J.K. Rowling's masterpiece and Potterheads around the world seem hellbent on savoring the few happy days Harry had with his parents before they were cruelly snatched from him.
Below is some of the most heart-wreching fan art depicting the joyous times James, Lily and Harry spent together as a family unit, so prepare for a rush of seriously bittersweet feels.

They might be wizards, but in many ways the Potters are just like an ordinary family.
