Snow for Christmas

D: How big is this world?

Me: Huge! Not as big as Saturn and the other big planets, though.

D: It’s bigger than Pluto though.

Me: Yes – because Pluto’s a dwarf planet isn’t it?

D: No! It’s just small. Mercury‘s like Earth, but all the people are really hot.
Me: Are they?

D: Yes, because it’s the closest to the sun. But it’s OK, it won’t melt, because it’s a METAL planet – it’s made from metal. But all the people on it are sad because they can’t have Christmas.

Me: Why is that?

D: Because all the snow would melt. So it snows, and straight away it melts. So they can’t have Christmas.

Planets aligned!

Solar System mobile*, Aug 2012
D: That’s my favourite – Neptune – it’s all icy [far right].

*Sizes and positions bear no relation to the actual Solar System – planet sizes and where they hang is purely to make the mobile balance!
