The supermarkets are rammed, television adverts have now become five days long, and heating bills nationwide are spiking to battle the cold. No, we haven’t entered some parallel dystopian universe (you may disagree if you didn’t vote for the Conservatives), but winter is in full flow and that means Christmas is nearly here!
And a thoroughly entertaining bit of research from Sellhousefast.uk has revealed the most festive street names in the UK.
The most common festive street name across the UK is St Nicholas Street, which has 103 variations nationwide, most popularly in the East of England.
The East of England is actually the region home to the most festive street names (56), with the South East in second (36), North West in third (36), West Midlands in fourth (35) and East Midlands in fifth (33).
Meanwhile, the rest of the top five most common festive words found as street names across England were:
- Shepherd Road/Lane/Street/Close (50 variations)
- Pine Tree Close/Lane/Street etc (37)
- Noel Road (27)
- Stocking Lane/Close/Drive/Hill (18)
Now, brace yourselves for a shock. In fact, make sure you’re sitting down for this. Rudolph is not the most popular reindeer when it comes to street names. That honour belongs to Comet, which was found in 61 English streets, most commonly in the North West of England.
Rudolph, in fact, only has six street names, the most popular street name being (perhaps unsurprisingly) Rudolph Street.
All in all, the UK is home to just over 300 festive street names, with the delightfully-named Christmas Pie Avenue perhaps being the most festive of all.
