Christmas Island…no kidding!


There is an actual island called Christmas! I discovered this today while reading the blog Today’s History Lesson. The tiny island is in the general shape of a dog and is currently Australia’s territory. It’s 52 sq miles rises just above the ocean North-East of Australia, where its population of 1,493 live. Read more about Christmas Island in this Wikipedia article. And don’t be surprised if this makes it to the air on the podcast.
