Cover from Christmas Island

Many thanks to Maryam Muhammad Irwan for this special Christmas postmarks cover posted from Christmas Island, Canada! I know it's a bit late but good things must share ;)
For over 17 years during Christmas season, the Christmas Island post office gets almost as busy as Santa's workshop. The amount of mail received at the office jumps almost 1,000% during the holidays.  The thousands of letters come from around the world from collectors and holiday enthusiasts anxious to get the official postmark from Christmas Island.
