Australian conversations: what’s in a (Christmas) name?

At the Woolies checkout, three days before Christmas, being served by Holly:

JB, seizing an opportunity: “So how many people have commented on you having such an appropriate name at this time of year?”

Holly, all of about 15: “I’ve lost count,” smiling shyly.

JB, running with it: “About a million then.”

Holly, indignantly: “And my birthday isn’t even in December, it’s in August.”

JB, with a smile: “Have you had a word with your parents about this?”

Holly, resigned: “Every day.  *sigh*  Do you have a Rewards card?”
