Remember that one time in Harry Potter, when very wise Headmaster Dumbledore said, “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light,” and you were like [*sobs uncontrollably for a little while*]? It’s a pretty powerful quote, and one that has more than likely stuck with you during your day to day life and adventures. Now, it’s about to take on a whole new meaning when you buy this brand new Snape Patronus light that will bring you happiness in the most darkest of places…

Released by our friends over at ThinkGeek, this fancy Snape LED desk lamp, is yes, a lamp — but it’s also so much more!! When turned on, it casts a shadow of Snape’s doe Patronus on the nearby wall to help you work better in dim light, and probably scare off Dementors*!

(*the lamp has not been proven to scare off Dementors, do not try that at home)

And, to really drive the Snape feels home, underneath the doe is Snape’s “Always” quote, because he’s always going to love the mother of Harry Potter, Lily, even after all this time!!

So yeah, turning on the lamp might make you cry a little bit every time, but listen, it’ll be worth it to know that nearby, Snape’s patronus is casting a bright light for you when you need it most.

If you need one of these yourself (or for someone you love for the holidays) head on over to ThinkGeek and snag one right now.
