North Dakota’s Most Popular Holiday Movie Is?
Ready or not, the countdown to the holidays is officially here.
I think just about every family has a holiday movie tradition. I know in my family it's "Christmas Vacation." "Are you Serious Clark?" Yep, we can resight just about every line from the movie. "Hey Griswold, where are you going to put a tree that big?" "Bend over I'll show you."
Well, the fine folks at Preply just conducted a thorough study of the most popular holiday movies in the United States. Their methodology was based on internet searches on the 115 highest-rated and highest-grossing holiday movies of all time in America. "Clark, it's the gift that keeps giving the whole year long." "That it is Edward." "That it is." You see, I have a problem with that movie (Christmas Vacation). I know every line. People don't even like to watch it with me anymore.
Anyway, getting back to the study.
The Top 10 Holiday Movies in America are as follows:
#10. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (BOO, should be much, much higher!)
#9. It's a Wonderful Life (I've never got the hype behind this movie. Very slow and boring.)
#8. A Christmas Story (Worth a watch every year, a few laughs, but slow)
#7. Krampus (Tried to watch, not a fan)
#6. Love Actually (I'm not sure if I've ever seen it?)
#5. Happiest Season (Never seen it)
#4. Edward Scissorhands (This is a Christmas movie?)
#3. Elf (Okay, but a little over the top)
#2. The Grinch 2018 (Not as good as the original cartoon)
#1 Home Alone (Watch it just about every year)
So, what about what North Dakota likes to watch? North Dakota's favorite holiday movie is a tie. In fact, neither of them made the top 10 in America. They are as follows:
"Frosty The Snowman" and "The Santa Claus"
I'm a fan of both of those holiday flicks. I hope you take some time to watch your favorite holiday flick this season and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
