As it turns out, I completely mis-understood the question but got the same answer. I'm just posting this here for mild amusement.
Tinsel event - can only mean Christmas, which is the 25th of December
Man in England - if we're looking for a specific man, then the most notable is the Prime Minister, who lives at 10 Downing Street
Good height - completely stumped me (for good reason)
Last encounter - maybe related to the 11th hour, again slightly stumped here
At this point, I looked at the possible answers and saw that A and C started with 25, which would be impossible given that I "know" there's a 10 in there. As such, B and D are the only remaining options. If it's D, then Last Encounter would need to be less than 10, but I thought it may be 11. As such, I'd guess at B.
Like I said, it's completely off base and misses the actual pattern, it just made me smile.
