Mars ho ho ho
According to a comment from my sister-in-law, Gill, my niece Mila has concerns:
"Mila is still wanting more explanation on the Santa angle. She gets that you're not really in space, just pretending, but can't comprehend why you would be so close to Santa and not at least have gone to see him (or his reindeer, or elves..)."
I can't confirm or deny the identity of the people in the photo below, but they certainly look like Santa and one of his elves. They're not in their traditional Christmas outfits, and the beard is a bit too brown (Maybe Santa's fur changes color, like an arctic hare's does), but the similarity is striking:
Gill, if Mila asks about the rifle, you might want to make something up. She's a little young to find out where all those stuffed animals come from...
