Cover from Canadian Christmas Island, Nova Scotia

Christmas Island, Nova Scotia is a Canadian community of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. It has a post office, a firehall and a very small population. Christmas Island got its name because of a native that lived there whose surname was Christmas. He died on Ghost Island, adjacent to the beach. The post office of Christmas Island gets thousands of postcards and packages a day—up to two thousand on the busiest days—during the peak holiday time frame. These come from around the world during Christmas time so they can be sent on to their destinations with the unique Christmas Island postmark, like this one, in nice red and green colors. Stamps on cover are from set Christmas - Warm and Cozy, issued on 2.11.2018.

Thank you very much, Trevor!
