Space has a few objects that resemble their Earth based counterparts. I present a few of them for your enjoyment.
Snow Angel S106 Nebula
Cosmic Wreath of the star-forming nebula Barnard 3.
Pulsar SXP 1062, a celestial ornament.
The Cone Nebula in NGC 2264, near the bottom, looks like a Christmas tree in space.
The Snowflake Cluster (NGC 2264) is pretty self explanitory.
The Christmas tree cluster (also part of NGC2264) is also a pretty sight in the night sky.
Happy winter solstice, or what ever holiday you celebrate around the world this time of year.
