Who Ate All The (Mince) Pies?

A wee bit of Festive fun if you feel like it. Maybe easy, maybe not.

The question is; who's behind the Mince Pies.

I've asked Santa for a list of the answers, so if I've been a very good boy, perhaps I'll find out tomorrow.

    You are all very kind in giving this a bash, I know it can be a busy time for all of you. Some good answer here but seeing as Christmas is (mostly) for the kids, I may have added a couple of youngsters in at numbers 4 & 6, just to throw you all off the scent. Number 4 may not be quite as ‘everyday’ as its name may suggest. I also think Santa may have been a bit peckish through the night as a few of the puzzles appear to have had the odd chomp or two taken out of them. Perhaps he’s given us all a few additional hints in ID’ing the Mince Pie Mysteries.!! I have to go and help arrange another bird now, so answers will have to wait ‘til later. Thanks again for trying this, it's just a bit of festive fun.
