As if 2016 wasn't quite a great year for Potterheads all over the world (read: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Harry Potter-themed yoga, Fantastic Beasts app, J.K. Rowling designing a tattoo for a fan) the universe, in the form of Barnes & Noble is ending the year with a big, loud bang by holding a Yule Ball! (via bustle.com)
Also known as The Harry Potter Magical Holiday, the year-end event is a celebration of everything HP. Everyone's invited to attend and encouraged to wear their most festive holiday attire. There will be a lot of music, dancing, Harry Potter-themed activities and a special giveaway!
The catch is, the ball will be held at the Barnes & Noble stores, which are in the US. But the fact that a Yule Ball is finally happening after so many years of just wishing and feeling left out (we're looking at you, Hermione!), we can rest assured that something similar can happen here, too. It's not totally impossible. Who knows? Our local book stores might take a hint and grant us one as well. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*
