March of the penguin helpers
These penguins at Everland, South Korea's largest amusement park, could possibly be the cutest Santa helpers. Dressed in Santa Claus and Christmas-tree outfits during a promotional event, they delighted visitors by waddling down one of the park's avenues. Many Christian and non-Christian Koreans celebrate the holiday by exchanging gifts, carolling and participating in church services. South Korea is the only East Asian nation that recognises Christmas as a national holiday.
