These Are the Most Popular '90s Christmas Movie in Every State Across the U.S.

Did your favorite holiday film make the list?

Christmas is just one week away, and if you're someone who celebrates, you've likely been filling the month of December with your favorite annual traditions, like baking cookies, decorating the tree, and watching Christmas movies. While most people have a holiday flick they can't miss during the joyful season, have you ever wondered what the most popular one in your entire state is? CenturyLinkQuote has the answer to that question.

The data, which is based on Christmas movies specifically from the 1990s, revealed the most popular holiday film in every state. Overall, Home Alone was the most-Googled holiday movie, coming in as the top pick in New York, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Maryland, Massachusetts, Florida, Illinois, and Hawaii. The movie's ranking is fitting considering it's also the highest grossing film on the list, earning $476 million worldwide. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York was the favorite among residents of Wyoming.

Although you may still be up in the air on whether it's a Halloween or winter holiday movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas was another top contender, claiming the number one spot in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and West Virginia. Of course, it's not Christmas without Santa Claus, which is likely why The Santa Clause movie is big in Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Tennessee, Utah, and Vermont.

This one might come as a surprise, but Dumb and Dumber, starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels topped the list in four states—Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado—rounding out the top five. Other movies that weren't as popular across the country but still made the list include Jingle All the Way, Home for the Holidays, Miracle on 34th Street, The Muppet Christmas Carol, While You Were Sleeping and Jack Frost.
