Christmas on The Moon

It’s that time of the year again, where the temperatures drop, the stars shine a little brighter, and somehow even surrounded with people, we often feel a little bit more removed and alone. What would Christmas feel like on the Moon?

Desolation, longing, quietude, and triumph. We’ve walked up there, on that big glowing orb. A Christmas up there would be lonely, but beautiful. The Earth shining in the distance like a glittering gift.

Here at Recspec HQ we like to have fun with the Christmas season, last year we visited Twin Peaks for the holidays, and this year we’re visiting space.
