Penguins help out Father Christmas in Japan

Everyone knows that Father Christmas is traditionally helped by elves, but as they are presumably very busy getting ready in the North Pole, a flock of penguins are helping out at an aquarium near the Japanese capital Tokyo.

Visitors to Yokohama's Sea Paradise are treated to a daily "Penguin Christmas Parade" in which six cape penguins, wrapped up in their best Christmas outfits, waddle alongside Father Christmas.

The aquarium's caretaker Shingo Sato said: "We hope combining the normal joy of seeing animals with Christmas gives visitors extra pleasure."

After the parade, the penguins have one more special task to complete when darkness falls, as they are the ones who get to turn on the aquarium's Christmas lights.
