The folks over at HowToWatch.com have put together a list of which Holiday movies are our favorite in each state.
To do so they took a list of the “50 Best Christmas Movies of All Time” from Thrillist and processed it through Google Trends to determine the most-searched Christmas film in each state.
The top 3 nationwide were Elf, Scrooged, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
Beyond the three powerhouse films above, some obvious classics made the list like: Home Alone (Rhode Island), A Christmas Story (Ohio), Bad Santa (Alaska), The Polar Express (Arizona, North Carolina, South Carolina), and Love Actually (Vermont).
Then there were the bizarre results:
Colorado, Florida, Massachusetts: Eyes Wide Shut.
North Dakota: Krampus.
Oregon: Christmas Evil.
We can thank the residents of Illinois for saving the nation's Christmas spirit for making It’s a Wonderful Life their top film.
