Severus watched Harry look longingly at the box of sleeping puppies.
Severus cleared his throat, to get the attention of the woman fussing with the camera. "Perhaps... if it was a bit less... risqué, Harry would agree to posing for something with me."
Harry looked up, startled.
"Ooohh.... really?" she cooed.
"Certainly," Severus said silkily.
"What did you have in mind?" she asked.
"Perhaps... something that might appeal to your Muggle customers?" Severus suggested.
Harry sighed, then grinned. "Sure, you've been a good sport. What did you have in mind?"
Severus selected a costume from the clothes rack. "We could both wear one of these."
Harry's eyes lit up in merriment. "That I can do!"
"Then find a suitable backdrop and I'll transfigure these to fit each of us," Severus directed.
Harry quickly found a snow scene -- a bright sunny day with fresh snow on the ground. "I think this will do."
"It will, indeed," Severus agreed. He handed Harry a costume.
Each dressed as Santa Claus, Severus put an arm around Harry, pulling him close.
Harry looked up at Severus and grinned, "You didn't have to go this far to talk me out of taking a puppy home!"
