Ten: penguin


I’ve actually seen an unusual number of penguins recently thanks to Mr Attenborough and Frozen Planet.

For anyone who hasn’t been watching, I suggest you hop to it – Frozen Planet provides a wealth of penguin information. Whether it’s on the Gentoo, Adelie, Rockhopper, Humboldt, Galapogo, Macaroni and Emperor families.

York’s Festival of Angels upped the festive anti though, with ice sculptures, fake snow (surprisingly it still hasn’t fallen for real in York) and Bailey’s served through a tube of ice. And: a penguin sculpture.


No idea what Buzz Lightyear, Woody or Harry Potter have to do with Christmas…but none of them got knocked over by excited children so it was a definite #festivefulfillment.
