Polar Bears Playing In The Snow Is The Best Christmas Gift The Internet Can Give You

What’s a better way to start your long holiday weekend than watching polar bears playing in the snow?

Supposedly, they roll around in the white stuff to cool off, but it looks like they're also enjoying themselves.

If you're wondering about the dark patches underneath the fur, it's because polar bear skin is actually black.

Also, that fur isn’t actually white. Polar bear hairs are actually translucent, hollow tubes that only seem white when light passes through them.

Although, as long as they have plenty of snow to roll in that probably doesn’t make a difference to polar bears.
