Description:
Christmas Island, Nova Scotia (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean na Nollaig) is a community of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia Canada. It has a post office, a firehall and a very small population. The post office of Christmas Island gets postcards from around the world during Christmas time so they can get the Christmas Island post stamp. It also has a beautiful beach with access to the Bras d'Or lakes. 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.

Gaelic

The Christmas Island fire hall holds the Feis An Eilein every summer, a Gaelic festival featuring Gaelic music, dancing and culture. It is held in August and includes such things as a milling frolic, square dance, bonfire, bag piping, step dance, fiddle and piano lessons. As well there is instruction in Gaelic language, folklore and music.

Gaelic is still spoken by a few elderly residents, as many Highland Scots emigrated to Christmas Island during the Highland Clearances.
