Christmas in Antartica

I came across this interesting post about how they celebrated Christmas at McMurdo Station in Antarctica. This LiveJournal entry by one of the participants tells about it. 21 people dressed in Santa and elf costumes took a trip to "The Stellar Axis" and had general fun romping around in -15 weather.
the stellar axis is a giant art piece depicting the 99 brightest stars in the southern hemisphere. blue fiberglass spheres of various yet relative sizes represent the stars - with sirius being the largest. they are arranged as they are in the sky, in forms of constellations as they are when the solstice occurs.
Here are their pictures in Flickr.
