Christmas celebrations on the ISS.

Aboard the orbiting International Space Station, Expedition 34 Commander Kevin Ford, Russian Flight Engineers Oleg Novitskiy, Evgeny Tarelkin and Roman Romanenko, NASA Flight Engineer Tom Marshburn and Canadian Space Agency Chris Hadfield celebrated Christmas on the orbital laboratory Dec. 25, 2012 through song and downlink messages of cheer for flight controllers on the ground.
The crew spent Christmas enjoying a joint meal with one another, sharing holiday greetings with their families in private conferences and soaking up the view of the Earth from the outpost.
