Universal Studios Hollywood X page shared that the upcoming holiday season is on its way. I commend the marketing and creativity team at Universal Studios Hollywood for such a fun and catchy holiday phrase.

Although its marketing tactics were creative, we are unsure how the catchy phrase and description fit in with the two returning holiday favorites at Universal Studios Holiday as nothing else has yet to be announced. Perhaps this is a tease from USH?

However you holiday, You Do Yule. Whether you’re feeling merry or full of mischief, this is the place to let loose and set your festive side free!

Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is already majestic outside of the holiday season. However, during the holidays, Hogsmeade, a wizarding village, transforms into a winter wonderland that cannot be missed. Guests will be able to enjoy the Hogwarts Frog Choir, an a cappella group.

When you are warm and cozy enjoying a warm butter beer, make sure not to miss the light projection show that illuminates the façade of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardly Castle.  “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle” includes Christmas winter wonderland scenes accompanied by music from the Harry Potter films.

“You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch” will be a Christmas tune that you will not be able to get out of your head after visiting Grinchmas at Universal. The citizens of Whoville’s Whobilation returns this year to Universal Plaza, including the nightly lighting of the 65-foot-tall “Grinchmas” tree.

Also returning this year, Grinchmas will provide many different photo opportunities with the Grinch himself and his adorable dog, Max, and Whoville’s favorite Whoville, Cindy-Lou, who recites “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” daily.

New to this year’s festivities will be an all-new daytime show featuring Whoville’s up-and-coming musicians, the Who-Bee-Doo-Wops, who will perform holiday songs!
