Christmas is almost upon us and nothing puts you in the holiday spirit more than a festive Christmas movie and now we know what the most popular one is in North Dakota.

As originally posted on Thrillist, Google Trends recently put together a map of the most popular Christmas movies in every state.

As surprising as it may be, 'Home Alone', 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas,' nor 'It's a Wonderful Life' show up on this map anywhere. You'll also notice that in North Dakota, the most popular Christmas movie based on Google search trends is the hilarious comedy starring Will Ferrell, James Caan, and Zooey Deschanel, known as 'Elf.' The movie more or less dominated the western side of the U.S.

However, the most popular in 26 states is 'Polar Express.' It even won over Illinois, where 'National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation,' and 'Home Alone' for that matter, took place (Chicago).

If you're still being a Scrooge about the holidays, maybe this clip will get you in the Christmas spirit.
