"Merry Christmas – and God bless all of you" from Apollo 8

On the 24th of December 1968, in what was the most watched television broadcast at the time, the crew of Apollo 8 read in turn from the Book of Genesis as they orbited the moon. Bill Anders, Jim Lovell, and Frank Borman recited Genesis chapter one, verses 1 through 10, using the King James Version text.

Wishing everyone a truly happy & blessed Christmas. May God bless you!
