Maybe, I'm not convinced though. And her parents weren't magical, other wise Lily, wouldn't have been a muggle-born and Harry would've been pure blood. But I do think Petunia was jelous of Lily

Hmmm... It's possible, but why would she cover it up when Harry found out ??? She would have told him. And I'm sure vernon would have known too.

Muggleborn = A child born of muggle parentage with no identifiable magical lineage, who then goes on to have magical ability.
Squib = A child born of magical parentage who goes on to have no magical ability
Muggle = A child born of muggle parentage with no identifiable magical lineage, who goes on to have no magical ability.

Lily is a muggleborn, Petunia was a muggle and Filch was a squib.

I do see how you could come to the conclusion that Petunia was a squib, but it's not so. Her parentage was correct for that, if Lily was muggleborn. (:

I don't think she was, because Mr and Mrs Evans weren't magical. You have to have magical parents to be a squib, right?

No I think Lily is just muggle-born. Can't you only be a squib if you were born to two magical parents?

EDIT: sorry, someone has JUST said the same thing.

In HP7, The Prince's Tale, the Evans are described as "looking around the platform with an air of wholehearted enjoyment, drinking in the scene". If either had been magical, Platform 9 3/4 would had been old hat to them having been there at least 7 times as Hogwarts students.

Petunia was just jealous of her sister in any and every way. Though it was not possible for her to be a squib their parents being muggles and all, there was a fierce jealousy in place long before Petunia knew her sister was "special". Their parents I'm sure were proud of them both, but Petunia saw her sister given special treatment and probably thought her parents favored her sister.

A ship in harbor is safe — but that is not what ships are built for.

She does seems like it, doesn't it?

But she couldn't possibly be because her parents are muggles, which makes their daughters either a muggle-born witch, or a pure muggle.

She can't be. Both parents are muggles. Not only that, you don't have to be a wizard to understand a howler! Also it makes sense that her sister and Snape told her about dementors because of Lily and Snape's conversation.

No, because her parents were both muggles otherwise Lily wouldn't be muggleborn.

Petunia is just a muggle. Their parents weren't magical, Lily was a muggleborn.

As others said, Lilly can't be a squib because her and Petunia's parents were Muggle borns. Hence why James always made fun of her for being a mudblood and hence why Snape accidentally called her a mudblood and started that whole thing off with James (although I guess you could argue whether or not she would have ended up with James anyway)

Anyway though, where does it actually say that Lily was born to non-magic parents?
I agree with VeelaChic, it does make perfect sence, but such a good witch might not have been born to squibs, in my opinion to be a squib is worse than to be a muggle.
