What Christmas movie is your go-to movie for sitting in front of the fireplace sipping on cocoa or some hot wassail to get you in the mood for Christmas?

Wealthy Nickel ranked the most popular Christmas movie from each state and since there are so many to choose from, they used data from Google Trends and Rotten Tomatoes to rank them.

You may not agree that movies such as Die Hard, Edward Scissorhands, or Trading Places should be considered Christmas movies but the searches for those three movies do spike during the last couple of weeks of November and all of December so they were included on the list of popular Christmas movies for a few states.

Trading Places ended up the favorite Christmas movie in the most states such as Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Edward Scissorhands ended up the favorite Christmas movie for only four states: Arizona, California, Florida, and New Mexico.
