When your birthday is at Christmas

When you're turning fifteen and it's Christmas time in London, you could start your day with a make-over in Oxford Street ...

While in Harrods, monument to all that is flashy, tacky, brass and bling ...

... there are plenty of opportunities for silly posing and fun ...

Hagrid, aka Older Daughter and Dumbledore in the Harry Potter department; a bauble for the Christmas tree?

At Covent Garden, going bright red for Christmas ...

... there are performers to entertain ...

balancing unsupported at the top of a ladder, this man stripped from kilt, jacket and stockings down to his underwear, then juggled with knives for an enthusiastic crowd!

... large elves cutting bunches of mistletoe under fairy lights ...

... merry musicians dancing a jig ...

... and even a giant reindeer rearing up under a cloudy sky, while machines pump snow ...

Happy birthday, Bella! May your year be sparkly and bright!
