5 February is the 36th day of the year. There are 329 days remaining (330 in leap years) until the end of the year.
- 1994: Harry Potter notices Cho Chang for the first time, during the Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. Gryffindor wins the match, and Harry goes to bed on a high. Unfortunately, this is all brought to an abrupt end by what everyone assumes is a murder attempt by Sirius Black on Ron Weasley. In fact, he was attempting to find Peter Pettigrew in the form of Scabbers, Ron's pet rat.
- 1999: Rufus Fudge, nephew of former Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge, Vanishes a Muggle "tube train" as a bet. The Muggles do not notice that the train had gone missing, but Fudge is suspended from the Improper Use of Magic Office, after an inquiry is launched two days later.
