Which Christmas movie is the most popular in your state?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… And for most, nothing says “Christmas” quite like their favorite movie.
But which Christmas movie is providing the most festive cheer in your state?
We’ve put together a list of the top holiday movies by state (based on what’s been the hottest topic on Google Trends over the past year) with some surprising (and rather unchristmassy!) results.
In stark contrast, some states appeared to be in search of something very different when it came to their Christmas movies. For example, Google Trends data suggested residents in Georgia were opting for the 1979 version of Elvis when searching for Christmas movies. But Ohioans, South Carolinians, and Tennesseans fancied something darker, favoring Halloween (2018), Better Watch Out, and Gremlins (1984), respectively. However, as this study is Christmas-based, we’ve selected the top festive movie for each state, meaning the results for each of these states are as follows: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie (GA), A Snow Capped Christmas (OH), Office Christmas Party (SC), and Christmas with the Kranks (TN).
