Is it really that time of year already? Believe it or not, Christmas is just around the corner and the Universal parks are gearing up to celebrate the festive season.

The all-new ‘Christmas in [t]he Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ experience will resonate throughout the immersive land this yuletide season transforming the iconic HogwartsTM [C]astle into a dazzling light projection spectacular, while the quaint town of Hogsmeade village shines brightly with décor uniquely themed to each of the individual storefronts.
