Accept that we had a reason to go to Mars, managed to build a colony there, and what we found on Mars is valuable enough to ship back to Earth. There is now a self sustainable colony living under the domes, all made possible because we found out how to make water out of rocks and ice on Mars, and regular cargo ship transfers from Mars to Earth.
The colony has been in existence for more than 20 years and now the colonists have to deal with yet one more thing: Children and Christmas.
- Does Santa make it from Earth's North Pole to Mars in time when we know that cargo supply ship makes it in half a year?
- Do the reindeer survive in space?
- Does Santa survive in space?
- Will letters to Santa make it physically to Earth if we send them back on cargo ship?
Given the fact that Sol (=Mars day) duration is longer, and Mars year is also bit longer, when to celebrate Christmas?
And ultimately, Christmas started as Pagan festival of winter end. Would it make more sense to celebrate, say, dust-storm end on Mars?
P.S.: I know this question is on the edge of "too broad" and "opinion based", so if you feel like it should not be here, let me know, and I will remove it
