Throughout the Wizarding World, favorite holiday moments come to life on Hogwarts castle. The impressive holiday show returns. Additionally, special holiday performances fill the areas with delightful holiday tunes.

All these items are featured in the backdrop of magical Christmas decorations. While your wand might not create snow falling from the sky, it does seem a little cooler with a sip of hot Butterbeer.
