The rivalry between Halloween and Christmas came to a head last night at Universal Orlando, as a group of Christmas carolers crashed Halloween Horror Nights to signal the end of the Halloween season.
Then @UniversalORL decided to take things further with these ominous tweets late in the evening on Oct. 31:
To put the final nail in @HorrorNightsORL’s coffin, just after midnight, officially on Nov. 1, @UniversalORL stationed Christmas carolers outside the park gates for Universal Studios Florida, complete with holiday decorations and Christmas trees.
One might view this as possible payback for Horror Nights sending Santa Claus and one of his elves through a haunted house on their way back to the North Pole, which you can watch here.
Of course, Horror Nights had to retaliate, and they did so by encouraging guests to protest with handmade signs to drown out the holiday cheer:
It is safe to say that @HorrorNightsORL was more than bitter about the stunt:
The stunt didn’t last very long, but @UniversalORL proved they weren’t done yet, as they sent the carolers and local elf Giggles to Universal’s Islands of Adventure to share the joy that comes with the end of the haunt season:
It is unclear if this Christmas caroler/Halloween protest stunt will continue tonight and tomorrow, the final two nights of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando.
What do you think about the end of Halloween Horror Nights season at Universal Orlando? Are you one of those people who puts up their tree the day after Halloween, or does the spooky season deserve to last a little longer? Let us know how you feel in the comments!
