Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was first published 20 years ago. If you can’t practice real magic on the book’s anniversary, you can celebrate the occasion with an enchanting Easter egg now available on Facebook.

According to The Next Web, the hidden feature is summoned by mentions of the names Harry Potter, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin. Facebook statuses containing these key terms display a wand emitting sparks when users tap on it. Clicking the words Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin changes the graphic to match the respective house colors.

Facebook isn't the only place online honoring 20 years of J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world. For more magical web content, check out the New York Academy of Medicine's digital library of historical texts that would feel right at home on a Hogwarts reading list.
