Christmas quiz 5

This quiz is broken into 8 questions.  Each question has 4 clues with an answer each, and the answers have something in common.  You'll need to write them down, as even when I read through the quiz I had to think about the links carefully, and it was much easier with the possible answers written down.  The correct answers will have some sort of commonality, e.g. they may be different names of the same thing, different things with the same name,homphones, or may be prefixed/preceded/suffixed/followed with/by a common word. Loosely based on LINKEE, but more cryptic.  As an extra challenge, the first letter of the answers spell out a word, which is what I may have been better doing, rather than setting the quiz.
