The Polynesian island called Christmas Island gets its name for one special reason. The first European explorer Jacob Roggeveen found the island on Easter Sunday in 1722.

Someone sent me a forwarded mail about there being stone bodies underneath the heads. I wonder if it's true or a hoax. You never know these days.
