    I know that white Xmas was never a Xmas number 1, but not sure if it ever got there or for how long...so I'll go for 4 as it's the lowest number not used yet.
  • 2 new correct answers there, Leeds Addick.

    Henry has already got the White Christmas answer. It was in the chart for 25 weeks, presumably not all in the same year. I think it's highest hart position was number 5.
  • 18. What is the average age that children in the UK stop having a Christmas stocking by their bed?

    I know people in their 20's who continued to have them, so as an average I'll say 19?
