By the time you hit adulthood, Christmas has pretty much lost its magic. From the day our mothers left the tags on our Christmas gifts, and we realized that no, Santa doesn’t shop at TJ Maxx, our holidays have been devoid of the magic that came along with that jolly, chubby old guy who had a bunch of elves
enslaved in helping out at his toy factory.
It’s time we put the magic back in Christmas, and this dedicated Harry Potter fan created just the tree for the job.
Kathryn Burnett created the Harry Potter-themed Christmas tree using things she collected during her visits to the Harry Potter studio tour in London. It features everything from a Ravenclaw diadem to the Dolores Umbridge unicycle. It even has a too-cute owl in a cage, and of course, it’s topped with a sorting hat. What house do you think the tree would have fit in?
Burnett spoke to The Huffington Post, and basically said all of her friends thought the tree was crazy (by crazy, we hope they meant crazy awesome or she should probably ditch those boring muggles and get some new friends, fast).
“The two things I love the most are Christmas and Harry Potter. At first my friends thought it was a crazy idea, but now they love it,” she said.
It was well worth it because the tree is almost as magical as Howarts’ Christmas dinner. Check it out below!
