So imagine one mother's horror when she opened her three-year-old daughter's new passport to see the face of a young boy staring back at her!
Amy Haddley, 30, thought she'd had everything organised for her family's Christmas getaway to Lapland by applying for her youngest daughter Elsie's passport early.
So when it arrived - just weeks before their festive trip - she couldn't believe the photograph in it was of a mystery boy, who looked nothing like her little girl.
Terrified the holiday would have to be cancelled, the Merseyside mother rushed straight into the passport office in Liverpool to get a correct photo and thankfully, she was able to make the switch the family can go away as planned. Phew!
After all of this hassle, we're hoping Santa will have a few treats in his sack for this family!
