Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
NASA's Apollo 8 Astronauts 
The Apollo 8 crew is photographed posing on a Kennedy Space Center (KSC) simulator in their space suits. From left to right are: James A. Lovell Jr., William A. Anders, and Frank Borman.

Apollo 8, the second human spaceflight mission in the United States Apollo space program, was launched on December 21, 1968, and became the first manned spacecraft to leave Earth orbit, reach the Earth's Moon, orbit it and return safely to Earth.

The three-astronaut crew —Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders—became the first humans to travel beyond low Earth orbit, the first to see Earth as a whole planet, the first to directly see the far side of the Moon, and then the first to witness Earthrise.

The 1968 mission, the third flight of the Saturn V rocket and that rocket's first manned launch, was also the first human spaceflight launch from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, located adjacent to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays.
How have astronauts in the past, and astronauts currently living aboard the International Space Station gotten around to celebrating Christmas while in space?

Surprisingly, the answer is quite similar to how one would celebrate it down here on planet Earth!

To learn how people living in space during Christmas, both past and present, celebrate the holiday season while at the same time flying at 5 miles a second, be sure to check out Irish Space Blog.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
