Christmas kicks off on Thanksgiving at Universal Hollywood

October 21, 2019, 3:56 PM · The forecast calls for snow returning to Hollywood next month, as Christmas festivities return to Universal Studios Hollywood.

Not only that, but Grinchmas expands to a daily schedule when the holiday festivities kick off on Thanksgiving Day at Universal Studios Hollywood. Both Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Grinchmas will run daily (and included with regular park admission) from Thursday, November 28 through Sunday, December 29.

Props to Universal for not jumping the gun on Christmas by waiting until Thanksgiving to start its celebrations. Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will welcome back the The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle projection show as well as holiday performances by the Frog Choir, decorations throughout Hogsmeade, holiday-themed collectible merchandise... and the return of holiday food at The Three Broomsticks, including Hot Butterbeer.

Over in the Universal Plaza, the 55-foot Grinchmas tree will light up every night during the musical Merry Grinchmas Who-lebration, accompanied by a snowfall flurry. The Grinch, his dog Max, and the Who-ville Whos will be on hand in the Plaza for meet and greets throughout the day, too.
