There are three types of people who knock on our door: delivery folks (preferably DoorDash or Eat24), guests we have invited over, and everyone else. The “everyone else” frequently invokes a sense of dread in us. What stranger is knocking on our door and why? Are they going to attempt to sell us a magazine subscription or lawn care services? Sorry, but we’re not interested. Can you come back when we finish this book series? Kthxbai.
Establish what sort of person you are with friends and strangers and make it clear what sort of visitors are truly welcome when you put out this Harry Potter door mat. It boldly reads “Wizards Welcome (Muggles Tolerated)” beneath the image of a wand. Just keep in mind that when you invite wizards over, it’s more likely that they’ll know the Unlocking Charm so there could be some surprises.
