The UK has around 3,400 Christmas-themed street names, according to the Royal Mail's findings.

They include Christmas Street, Reindeer Road, Tinsel Lane and Rudolph Road - plus the rather marvellous Christmas Pie Avenue.

Holly Street is the most popular UK-wide, with almost 1,000 listings, while the Midlands has the most festive-themed street names of all the UK regions.

We decided to find out how well Christmas themes were represented on street names.

The team came up with a number of words closely linked to Christmas, drew up a shortlist and began to investigate.

We found the Christmas theme was very well represented and we had a lot of fun doing it.

– Steve Rooney, head of Royal Mail's Address Management Unit
