Happy Penguin Day

World Penguin Day began many years ago when someone at NWC (Naval Weapons Center in Ridgecrest, California) became aware of the migration habits of the Antarctic penguin.

On April 25th of every year, the formally-clad penguins of the Antarctic continent begin an incredible northward migration. Penguins of great number all dive into that "wild blue under" and head North.

Curiously, they only swim about a hundred miles or so and after enjoying an extended "krill break," they all head back South and are home by supper time.
