OK, OK, it's not ATV/UTV But it is the season. Jingle Bells was the first music ever transmitted from space to earth.

Interesting Fact:

On December 16, 1965, astronauts aboard Gemini 6, Wally Schirra and Tom Stafford, played a prank on Mission Control. They said they saw some kind of UFO stating that the pilot was "wearing a red suit." They then played "Jingle Bells" on a harmonica (Hohner's Little Lady model) backed by sleigh bells. Both instruments are now on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and considered the first musical instruments played in space.

Don't have a pic of the Gemini. Here is one of the Enterprise enroute frome CA to FL at Scott Air Force Base, Bellville, Illinois. You know it's a OLD picture... I still have hair.
