You may not have received your Hogwarts acceptance letter this fall, but that doesn’t mean you can’t live vicariously through Harry, Ron, and Hermione this holiday season and showcase your Hogwarts pride. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter immerses guests into a world of fantasy and magic year round, but it becomes especially magical during the holiday season when it transforms for Christmas. This year, you can find gifts for every “Harry Potter” fan in your life, from Christmas ornaments inspired by the Wizarding World to one-of-a-kind sweet treats from Honeydukes. Merchandise locations throughout the Wizarding World also carry decorative Hogwarts Castle snow globes, ornaments featuring the four Hogwarts houses and the crest, and several Hogwarts tree toppers and a castle tree garland. Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is also offering specialty gift wrapping inspired by the Owl Post in the films.
