    She was a PCBH character called Chrissie Latham (nine minutes into episode 188) - I thought people would get the joke as Donald referred to Christmas as "Chrissie". I assume that you have never seen PCBH? Donald is in Australia and so he would be familiar with it as well.

    By the way, episodes 74 to 79 of PCBH are Christmas themed.

    The images I have are stored alphabetically and I can access the ones at the end of the alphabet more quickly than those at the beginning, hence it starting with Zs.

    Ahhhh ... oddly enough I store some of my contacts / mp3s etc with zzz's in front of the title as well for a similar reason .I've never ever seen it elsewhere until I saw your image .

    Similar minds clearly have similar thought processes !?!?

    It's a bit like how classified advertisements in newspapers and telephone directories start with AAAAAAAA because they want their company to be the first alphabetically.

    My concept is probably similar to how ZZ Top got its name...

    Do you prefer artificial Chrissie trees or the real thing.

    Who still puts their presents under the Chrissie tree?
    1) I keep the lights on the Christmas tree when I store it away for 11 months of the year, so the answer is yes to that one.

    2) Artificial trees as I have had the same one for over a decade (and my parents had the same one for over 20 years).

    3) There isn't too much room underneath, especially with the size of the presents, but I do try and keep them as closest as I can under the tree.

    Good question Donald ...

    LIGHTS - I do love the these at Christmas as I feel they create a 'light' in the darkness of winter and add a bit of magic. I like lots of them on my tree, I enjoy the fun and nostalgia of coloured lights but love the elegance and beauty of warm white lights. The lights always go on the tree but I sometimes add others around the house if the fancy takes me, perhaps on a ledge or around the stair bannister, also a few little ones outside sometimes.

    TREE - I prefer a real tree for the fragrance, the naturalness and the nostalgia, but appreciate an artificial one for not dropping needles, not needing water and also being easier to decorate. I do enjoy both and decide each Christmas which to have that year.

    PRESENTS - These go under the tree as soon as they are wrapped (with some taking longer than others to make it there), but I do like to see them sat there under the twinkling lights

    I install my lights on 30 November and leave them up until the end of January. They are just decorative lights, not Christmas lights.
