This Year Harrods Celebrates Christmas With “The Land Of Make Believe” Windows

 

Harrods Christmas Windows 2014 - 7

No trains this time around. This year’s Harrods Christmas windows themed The Land Of Make Believe came to life this week with  magical mice Peter Pumpernickel taking the center stage. Tiniest mice in the world, Peter arrived at Harrods to help Father Christmas and his group of uniformed helpers transform the store for the festive season. But Peter is of no use because he is too tiny, that was until Christmas lights on front of the building fail.

Peter help save the day for Father Christmas and this is the main story behind festive windows. The accompanying video of the story shows Father Christmas seeking Peter’s help to fix lights. Peter is small enough to fit in a hole that takes him to the lights outside the building. Peter climb through the hole and fix the light bulbs to light up Harrods again. The story ends with Peter and Father Christmas watching the lights as the snow begins to fall over London.

Some of Harrods’ favorite designers, including Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Zuhair Murad helped to bring life to windows with their magical creations that feature silver birch trees, ice-blue skies, snow drifts and oversized toys.
