Astronauts on board the International Space Station are getting into the holiday spirit.

Scott Kelly, Tim Kopra and Tim Peake sent their holiday greetings from space.

"Christmas is traditionally a time for friends and family to get together and although we can't be with our friends and families this year, we'll be orbiting the Earth 16 times on Christmas Day, and sending all our good wishes to everybody down there on beautiful planet Earth," said Peake, who became the first British national to reach the ISS on Tuesday (December 15).

Kopra and Peake are set to return to Earth on June 5 next year.
