But what about after the festive period? How do we wedge the magic into our lives when we’ve got new year blues and the summer feels like lightyears away?
For any Potterhead with a significant other and a load of cash, we’ve got some excellent news. You can now have a fancy three-course meal in The Great Hall at Hogwarts for Valentine’s Day.
If you’ve ever imagined yourself sat under the infamous starry sky ceiling, sipping on a glass of Butterbeer while your OH whispers sweet spells across a candlelit table, then you can now make it a reality. The Great Hall will be open to loved-up HP fans from Thursday 14th February to Saturday 16th February.
From 7pm until midnight, you’ll be feasting on dishes such as ‘gin’ botanicals cured scotch salmon, confit leg and breast of Aylesbury duck, and Sicilian lemon tart.
It’s not just the sit down dinner you’ve got to look forward to. You’ll also get to wander through the film sets with access to the Warner Bros Studio Tour after-hours, and will have the chance to pick up a drink on Platform 9 ¾.
Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 18th December, but if you want some you’ll have to be quick.
Last year, they sold out in absolutely no time.
There’s one slight catch – this experience of a lifetime comes with a rather large price tag. A table for two will set you back £495. Gulp.
But before you write it off, remember you’ll also get a nice photo to take home. And you’ll literally be having the most magical Valentine’s Day.
