Well, it’s not December yet. But Thanksgiving is over so the holiday season can officially begin. It is time to fill the darkest days of the year with friends, light, food, and laughter. And, in true Super Squad style, geek holiday parties are the best parties. I rounded up the best items from ThinkGeek to throw a party that’s so much better than Yule Ball.
(No, I’m not jealous that I never got my Hogwarts Letter. Why do you ask?)
Purchases made through any of these links will provide a small commission to Superpowers Sold Separately, because now I have a kitten and I’m pretty sure her stomach is a bottomless pit.
