Christmas is almost upon us, which means we've all been watching our favorite holiday movies on repeat for nearly a month now. We all have our own very strong opinions on what the best holiday movie is. (Cough, Christmas Vacation, cough. Sorry. There was something in my throat.) Now there's a way to find out if the good people of your home state share your love of your favorite festive flick. recently released a map of the most popular holiday movies in each state. They created their map by cross-referencing AMC's list of Top 20 Christmas Movies (which were voted on by the public) with Google Trends data from the past decade to figure out which holiday movie was the most popular in each state.


(Try not to get mad at the states that chose The Nightmare Before Christmas, which we all know is a Halloween movie. Yeah, looking at you California.)
