The last couple weeks leading up to Christmas is an exciting time for any family. The magnificent day’s menu is starting to come together, last minute gift ideas are being thrown around, and best of all, everyone fights about which holiday-themed movie you’re going to watch.
On average most families choose from the classics: A Christmas Story, Home Alone, Elf, It’s a Wonderful Life, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
According to this map developed by something called the Streaming Observer, everyone in America is obsessed with horrible choices for Christmas movies. We’re not talking about a few random states; we’re literally talking about every single one of them. How insulting?
Albeit for Home Alone, a great movie in its own right, this map is absolute hogwash and makes me question how they’re metrics were used. How does Gremlins make any list? Batman Returns? THE REF?!?
According to Streaming Observer, they compiled data from Rotten Tomatoes and Google Trends to make the list. These researchers deserve nothing but coal this year.
New Hampshire going with the classic Dickens’ tale A Christmas Carol is respectable (shout out literature) but there’s been so many versions of it, which one are we talking about it? Bah humbug to this list.
