Ron began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991 and was Sorted into Gryffindor House.He soon became best friends with fellow student Harry Potter and later Hermione Granger.They once transfigured Ron's teddy bear into a giant spider, sparking his arachnophobia.On another occasion, the twins nearly got him to make an Unbreakable Vow, which finally made their father truly furious (and Fred would later state that his left buttock has "never been the same since" after the row that ensued).Ron had a fairly happy childhood, which Harry, who had been brought up by his spiteful relatives the Dursleys, envied.To compensate for their impoverishment, Ron's mother indulged him in three delicious meals daily.He was Sorted into Gryffindor House, like every other Weasley.On his first trip on the Hogwarts Express, Ron met and became friends with the famous wizard Harry Potter.
