Everyone's getting into the Christmas spirit this week, even the penguins.

A pack of the black and white birds, dressed in Santa suits and Christmas tree costumes, have been bringing in the crowds at a South Korean theme park.

The walkabout - or waddleabout - was staged to kick of Christmas festivities at the Everland park.

South Korea is the only East Asian nation to recognise Christmas.

Many Christian and non-Christian Koreans celebrate the holiday by exchanging gifts, caroling and participating in church services.
