Penguins are a popular theme for Holiday Cards and recently they have even been featured in movies such as Madagascar and the soon to be released Happy Feet by Warner Bros. The attention given to penguins is understandable because they are completely fascinating creatures. They look like cuddly furry animals and swim like fish. Sometimes it is almost hard to believe they are actually birds with densely packed feathers and bodies that are too heavy for their underdeveloped wings.
These comical birds cannot fly, but there are times when they become airborne. Penguins are not able to breathe underwater. Although they can hold their breath for quite a long time, eventually they must leap from the water to get a fresh breath of air. In those few instances it would appear that they are flying. They also occasionally take a flying leap from the water to reach cliffs or ice flows.
Cards Direct features delightful Penguin Christmas Cards. One of my favorites is the Teamwork Penguin Card, designed by Chris Masters that shows twelve penguins standing on top of each other trying to put the angel on the Christmas tree. I can’t help but smile when I look at this card. What a great way to communicate the spirit of working together to your organization or company.
