Here Is the Most Popular Christmas Movie in Every State

It's December, which means for the next four weeks we'll be inundated with Christmas music and movies everywhere we go. And while most holiday movies are lame, there are some that transcend the genre and become beloved classics.

Streaming Observer decided to figure out the most popular Christmas movie in every state. To do so, they looked at data from Rotten Tomatoes as well as Google Trends analytics.

We should warn you that Streaming Observer used a pretty liberal definition of a Christmas movie. So if you're in the camp of "Die Hard is not a Christmas movie," then you're probably not going to like to this list.

Here's the most popular Christmas movie in every state:

For the record, I'm pro-Die Hard is a Christmas movie. Having said that, I feel like there is a lack of Christmas spirit in these movies. How is Elf so underrepresented? And It's a Wonderful Life appears nowhere on this list.

Also, I'm assuming Maine's pick of The Snowman is the 1982 animated movie about a snowman coming to life, and not the 2017 movie about a serial killer in Norway. Because I'm pretty sure the latter didn't involve Christmas, unless you count any movie where snow is visible to be a Christmas movie.

And for the record, the best Christmas movie is The Muppets Christmas Carol.

I've been covering cannabis for nearly five years, and by now I'm all too accustomed to the impersonal cannabis conference at a stuffy, generic hotel or expo hall, brimming with white guys in suits, and generally lacking in the spirit of well, cannabis. (The woes of legalization, I suppose.) So it was a breath of fresh air when I walked into what felt like a giant atrium in downtown LA for a new kind of cannabis conference. Located in what's called the Valentine Grass Room in an industrial area past the hustle and bustle of the DTLA skyscrapers, Microscopes & Machines (M&M) boasted a diverse array of speakers, from doctors and lawyers to chemists and cultivators on the frontlines of the cannabis industry.
