Lion and tiger cubs spread Christmas cheer in S Korea

Everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit today, even our friends from the animal kingdom.

At a zoo in South Korea, a baby lion and tiger are spreading Christmas cheer to visitors there, as they play in Santa hats and reindeer antlers, Reuters reported.

While they don't have any cookies out for Santa Claus, their zookeepers are making sure these little ones aren't forgotten this holiday season.

"This is the first Christmas for them, so we prepared a special event. As they're getting teeth, now it's the time their teeth are itching so we gave them presents such as wooden toys. We hope they have a happy Christmas," said zookeeper Kim Gim-mok.

With new toys and cute hats, it seems impossible that they won't.

Other zoos around the world also ensure that their animals have happy Christmases, giving them presents and special treats.
