As the last Eagle lifted off for the holiday, orbit-show festivities, John Koenig couldn't help but feel a bit dejected. Lost. Alone.

"Oh, there you are John", Victor announced. "You've got to admit, it'll be one of my better novelties", pointing out the balcony deck window. "When those glittery silica bombs burst 100 feet up, their particles will free-fall for an instant, then slowly glide down like..."

"Like snow..", Koenig cuts in. "I never had you pegged as old-man winter, Victor."

"I never had you pegged for old-man Scrooge. Where's your Christmas spirit John?"

"Fake lunar snow. Memories of Jack Tanner."

Vibrations from the silica bombs slightly shook John's office.

"Look!", Victor cried as he led John over to the window. Bursting fireworks gave way to an instant lunar snow storm! "It's worked"

"Was there any doubt?", John asked in praise. "Merry Christmas Victor, and thanks for melting the Grinch's icy heart!"

"..and Happy New Year!", Victor adds, pulling up his bottle-in-a-black-bag, left over from the Black Sun party.
