Universal Studios Hollywood has announced the comeback of yuletide favorites and family traditions, as the “Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” and “Grinchmas,” returns – beginning Friday, November 26 and running daily through Sunday, January 2, 2022.

“The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle” returns this year. The nighttime show features projection mapping, lights, and music cast against the backdrop of Hogwarts castle. The A Capella Frog Choir returns, performing holiday-themed songs, and newly introduced holiday-themed fare and hot Butterbeer will further complement the overall experience.

Guests can commemorate their Christmas visit to Hogsmeade Village with a variety of exclusive keepsake items available for purchase, including personalized ornaments, garland, scarves, and stockings.

The jolly “Grinchmas” Who-lebration returns along with the “topsy-turvy” 65 foot-tall “Grinchmas” tree in Universal Plaza, adorned with hundreds of ornaments and thousands of LED lights. A dazzling tree lighting ceremony accompanied by a snowfall flurry will take place every evening, as guests celebrate with The Grinch, his faithful dog Max and the Who-ville Whos, who will be performing on select nights. A selection of themed “Who-tacular” sweet treats, including hot cocoa will be available for purchase.

In addition to the theme park, spirited holiday décor will be featured around Universal CityWalk, including a spectacular 40-foot tall Christmas tree, featuring more than 200,000 LED lights. The ever-popular Voodoo Doughnut will offer a variety of festive doughnuts to celebrate the season.
