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!
