Christmas Island A surprise stopover on the way to Fiji. Captain Cook arrived here on Christmas Eve, hence the name. Anyone remember the Bing Crosby song – Christmas Island? Santa sails in with your presents in a canoe?? 2015-02-17T08:13:00-08:00January 26th, 2006|Fiji|4 Comments Share This Story, Choose Your Platform! facebooktwittertumblrpinterestEmail Related Posts 4 Comments BGB January 27, 2006 at 10:17 am - Reply Great! You were able to finally SEE Christmas Island! (Did anyone there even KNOW the song? I think it was a Danny Kaye recording!) Love ya’!!
