NASA astronauts Barry Wilmore and Terry Virts have recorded a message wishing the world a Happy Christmas from the International Space Station.

The two astronauts stood in front of the camera and talked about how they'd normally spend Christmas and how they plan on spending Christmas miles above the Earth.

To show that it's not all work on the space laboratory the two astronauts posed with stockings in the background and a small christmas tree floating in between them.

Wilmore is currently commander of the station until he finally departs for Earth in March 2015, Virts meanwhile will remain on the station until around mid-May.
