It's Assumption of Mary today, the bodily taking up of the Virgin Mary into Heaven at the end of her life. While I'm an atheist, let me wish you to have your gods and angels next to you and help you in anything you wish
By the way, I never liked the term "update". So let's change it

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
Planet Mars is a world blessed and cursed. It was a second Earth billions of years ago, rich with water, plants and animals. It was also the cradle of the native Martians, an ancient and mostly mysterious civilization. The green glory of Mars was finally passed away. Today, Mars is a mostly dead planet, a planetary cold desert. There is no ozone layer, neither water. But this planet is rich with exotic formations, canyons, mountains, craters, volcanoes, surface ice and dry rivers.
Mars was an Earth-like green planet. Today it's a red desert, where only a few native plants and animals can survive. We don't know how they evolved so radically..
Here and there we discovered ruins of ancient civilizations. We don't know what they are those structures, who or what made therm and why. We also don't know if their creators were Martian or extrasolar. Most important, we still don't know if their creators are dead... or still alive.
Today, Mars is inhabited by some native animals and plants, as well as the children of the first explorers from Earth. Today Mars "belongs" to SimMartians, Sims who came from Earth or born on Mars.
With all those ancient ruins, more and more SimMartians are worried. Did we colonize a wrong planet? Are we unwanted? Will the technological and spiritual upgrading on Mars has an end soon? Is there a cosmic drama with unknown "actors" and we are just in the middle of the drama without even know about it? SimMartians are not fearless, but they'll not let this fear take over their spirits and minds.
Mars is a haunted planet, as some Sims believe. There are stories about Sims who "listened" the voices of the aliens and even "saw" their shadows. Sceptical Sims reject those stories, claiming that they are just games of our mind affected by those discoveries. But let's face it, Mars is an exotic, beautiful and creepy planet. With all those discoveries, it's better to prepared for the best... or for the worst.
