    Christmas Island mail stamp featuring the first gift from the Twelve Days of Christmas

    Christmas Island - Oh the irony! Get far, far away from the traditional trappings of the big day by spending it in a place called Christmas. The only thing Christmassy about Christmas Island is that it is so named because a British naval captain sailed past it on Christmas Day in 1643. A dot in the Indian Ocean south of Java, the island belongs to Australia but there’ll be no Christmas Day barbecues on the beach here!
