As it gets into the spirit of the holidays, a Tokyo Aquarium has taken to dressing up a waddling band of penguins as elves to entertain their guests. It should be noted that Japan has a unique way of celebrating Christmas, focusing less on familial gifts and more no a semi-romantic atmosphere of fun.

An aquarium in Tokyo, Japan has “given Rudolph and the elves a day off” by dressing up a group of penguins in colorful Christmas elf costumes.


Aquarium caretaker Shingo Sato said, “We hope to combine the normal joy of seeing animals with Christmas, and by doing so, hope visitors will enjoy the experience even more than usual.”


We at the Raw Story Cuteness Desk thought maybe you could use a moment of cute, flightless levity. Happy holidays!
