Of course, the answer to "why is that?" is "Because."

And in England you can (or could0 live in a street not
on it. I've noticed that seems to be changing or have
changed. Of course, they also don't put so much
vinegar in the tomato ketchup anymore, either. :)

Things do happen "at Christmastime" as far as I'm
concerned, and if you consider the 12 Days of
Christmas, it fits just fine. I wouldn't say "in
Christmastime" at all.
