We ran the top 25 films from IMDb’s Top 100 Christmas movies of all-time list through every state on Google Trends, and the results suggest this nation might agree on something.

Here is a really cool fun fact from the findings,

Out of 25 movies, only eight were state favorites: “Die Hard,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Gremlins,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Love Actually,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “The Shop Around the Corner.”
