Guess What?! You Can Actually Spend Christmas At Hogwarts


There’s nothing better than Christmas. Or Hanukkah. Or whatever holiday you celebrate in December. The lights. The decorations. The gifts you forced your sort-of-boyfriend to get for you. No matter how you choose to celebrate, it’s the most magical time of the year. This time around, however, it’s going to be much more magical for a few lucky people.

According to Mashable, our favorite wizarding school is offering a once in a lifetime celebration.

Christmas dinner. At Hogwarts. In the Great Hall. Because yes, sometimes dorky Muggle dreams you had when you were eleven do come true.

From Warner Brothers:

The Hogwarts dining room will be dressed for the occasion with the original props used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, including flaming Christmas puddings and hams studded with cherries. A wand will be waiting for you at your table and you’ll enjoy the first two courses of a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings on the authentic set (vegetarian option also available).

First featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the Great Hall was home to Hogwarts’ famous feasts and the setting for many other memorable scenes such as the Sorting Ceremony in the first film where Harry is placed in Gryffindor house and the arrival of the Durmstrang and Beauxbatons students in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Screw asking for that Michael Kors watch. The experience costs £230 (which is $349 in American money), but considering that you get to combine two great loves (“Harry Potter” and food) I think it’s safe to say that when it comes to gifts, this is the way to go. It takes place on December 3, and in addition to the feast, you’ll get to explore the sets and finally feel like you weren’t snubbed an acceptance letter all of those years ago.

And if they throw in some spiked Butterbeer and a naked Neville Longbottom, then I’ll be on the next train out of platform 9 3/4. Cheers, Muggles.
