As we get closer to the holidays we start to wrap up our holiday season coverage and today we are checking out one of the best events in SoCal, Grinchmas at Universal Studios Hollywood.
The event has definitely changed over the years due to the huge changes at the park. Most of the events are centered in Unviersal Plaza and the Studio Tour which is great. Lots of great fun to be had.

Welcome to Grinchmas at Universal Studios Hollywood
Not only were we there to celebrate Grinchmas, but also our 21st anniversary. Did I marry up or what? ;)
Woah, Cartooniversal is GONE which gives a unique view of Wizarding World. For now.
It was a busy morning in Wizarding World.
One of the coolest things about Wizarding World ... no matter how many times we visit we always see one person each time in house robes and in tears being overwhelmed by Wizarding World. It's awesome to see. And people still think they don't need Wizarding World on both coasts.
We decided to take it easy and have some breakfast and Hot Butterbeer at Three Broomsticks.
So many Wholiday Events in Universal Plaza.
We had already had tickets for the LA Kings game that afternoon so we took a little break from the park to head down to Staples to take in the Hockey game. A look at the decorations in CityWalk.
Down at the Hockey game, which is just a short 8 mile drive from Universal. Of course, with LA Traffic it still takes awhile to get down there.
After a fun game (lots of goals and fights) it was time to head back to Universal.
The new Cinema looks fantastic
Absolutely love the entry plaza all lit up
It's still just amazing how much this park has changed over the past few years.
Even Shrek 4D looks great all lit up.
We had to go check out the Grinchmas show on the Studio Tour, and were greated by a special guest while in line.
Believe it or not, this was the first time we'd done the Studio Tour at night.
Looks so great at night.
The Grinchmas show is lots of fun.
Of course the Grinch has got to come out and try and ruin Christmas.
Always such a weird transition from Grinch to Psycho.
Let's check out the rest of the holiday decorations on the upper lot.
Grinchmas Tree Lighting show
Lots of fun Who stuff to do
A private party was about to happen, our invite must have been lost in the mail. ;)
Back in CityWalk, Kong with his Santa Hat
We were reminscing that when we first started dating shortly after CityWalk opened it was never busy, they've really turned this into a destination place for locals and tourists and it's great to see.
And that's gonna wrap it up for our Grinchmas update from Universal Studios Hollywood. It's definitely a great event that you should definitely check out. Click here for more info on Grinchmas.
After the first of the year we'll get back to having normal updates from goings on around the park. Happy Wholidays!!
