I've heard a few for #1, the most common of which is cobblers' awls hence the phrase "it's a load of cobblers". Then there's Niagara Falls, Davina McCalls, Albert Halls, Market stalls or on a slightly different theme, Jackson Pollocks, hydraulics and fun & frolics. None of which seems to have much relationship to Christmas except I suppose that Prince Albert introduced the Christmas Tree to England..
