Gatwick Airport welcomed holiday travellers with plenty of festive cheer.

 

The Christmas passengers appreciated the entertainment. Well, some of it. 

 

Gatwick, of course, had a few traditional Christmas accoutrements, like reindeer and Christmas trees.

 

 

And then there were the seagulls.

 

We are not kidding. People in seagull costumes were wandering around the airport, freaking out anyone who's ever had a bird snatch a sandwich out of their hand at the beach.

 

 

 

Maybe Gatwick is trying to start a new trend and make seagulls the new emblem of Christmas. This time next year we'll all be ditching our angels and stars for a gull at the top of the tree.

 

The birds were not the only unusual characters traipsing around the terminals.

 

There were monkey salespeople, a polar bear (slightly more conventional), and a French maid...on stilts.

 

 

 

 

There are no words. 

 

Gatwick's tweeted in response to the confounded travellers, saying, "Looks like it ruffled a few feathers Maria! Merry Christmas."

 

We hope that all of the baffled passengers in Gatwick get to their destinations safely!
