HARBIN, CHINA (CCTV/CNN) - Adorable penguins dressed appropriately for the holiday were making Christmas merrier in China. Penguins at Harbin Polarland in northeast China donned festive red and white Santa costumes over the weekend. 

The penguin family waddled around greeting visitors in "mini snow town," a newly-built area of the massive theme park.

Polarland covers 16,000 square miles, and combines animal shows, polar sights and hands-on interactions, said.

Hundreds of kinds of animals numbering in the thousands gather and interact with visitors at the attraction, the site said.    

The knee-high penguins are the perfect height to appeal to children.
