The penguin has to be the most uplifting winter animal. All dressed up in that cute winter tux and ready for comedy (just not with Jim Carrey, please!), I’ve had a soft spot for penguins since I read Mr. Popper’s Penguins as a child, and the 2005 film March of the Penguins just fueled my penguin love fire. These days, when darkness comes as early as 4:45 pm, I could use a little comic relief. — Amy Azzarito
