“I always stay at Hogwarts for the Christmas and Easter holidays, and I don’t ever want to go back to Privet Drive.”
If you couldn’t tell from the shops over-playing Christmas music and London being decked out in lights, the festive season is finally upon us. You know what else that means? Aside from us spending all our time covering the office in tinsel, it’s time for the annual #HogwartsInTheSnow event! Each year, the Harry Potter Studio Tour near London is transformed into a winter wonderland, allowing both guests and future Hogwarts students a glimpse of the Wizarding World during the snowy season.
Recently, our YouTube faves attended the launch event, making all of us uber jealous with their tweets and Instagram pictures. In true TenEighty fashion, we decided to round up a few of their posts to give everyone a sense of what #HogwartsInTheSnow is really like.
The anticipation was building

Everyone, from Connie Glynn to Helen Anderson, was excited to head to Hogwarts for the big night. To say #HogwartsInTheSnow is a much-anticipated event for our YouTube faves would be an understatement.
To Hogwarts we go!

Cherry Wallis, whilst you’re at Hogwarts, would you mind asking Professor McGonagall where our acceptance letter is? We’ve been sitting by the post since the summer holidays and have yet to receive anything.
All aboard the Hogwarts Express

Christmastime can finally begin!
— Liam Dryden (@LiamDrydenEtc) November 23, 2017
The #HogwartsInTheSnow event is the unofficial start of Christmas for every Potterhead. Don’t believe us? Just ask Gary, Tom Burns, Jamie Jo, and Liam Dryden! Time to assemble our fellow witches and wizards to show the UK just how magical this season can be.
A magical time was had by all

From the looks of it, everyone who attended this year’s event had a magical time. We’re not going to lie, we’re pretty jealous, but we’re sure our invite’s in the mail… Right, Warner Bros.?
Hogwarts never looked so magical.
With all the snow and decor, we can’t wait to hop aboard the Hogwarts Express to experience the school at Christmastime! We can’t wait to see in person what Hagrid and the professors have done with the place! Now, if only our acceptance letter would finally show up…
