    Park officials made artificial snow, and park employees made little red suits for the penguins. Children then gathered for the photo-op.

    It remains to be seen whether it's a good idea to teach little kids to humiliate animals for fun.  We'd like to see them try something bigger than penguins next time -- say, polar bears in elf costumes.  That would be a challenge.
