A list recently released announced the most popular Christmas movies for each state, and I was extremely surprised at Illoins' favorite holiday movie.

Now, I will say that out of 50 states 40 of them chose this movie as their state's favorite Christmas movie. Wishlisted posted the result which said National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is the most popular movie in Illinois. It takes place in Chicago, it's a classic, and you can't go wrong with watching this movie any time of the year to get a good laugh.

It's A Wonderful Life, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Love Actually and Gremlins also made the list but Christmas Vacation dominated most of the U.S. Now, the website only took the Top 25 files from IMDb's Top 100 Christmas movies of all time which according to that list Home Alone ranks #4 and Christmas Vacation #6. For me, it's a hard choice I love both movies, but if I had to choose just one I guess it would be Christmas Vacation.

I am disappointed that there are no Hallmark Christmas Movies, but I guess I'll get over it, For me watching these movies over and over and over and over again never gets old. They are all classics and we watch them every single year (sometimes more than once).
