“Christmas spirit” isn’t something tangible. It’s a feeling that can’t really be calculated or quantified. But of course, someone decided to try anyway . . .
A new study looked at ten different metrics to see which STATES have the most Christmas spirit.
They factored in things like google searches for Christmas movies . . . shopping trends for ornaments and wrapping paper . . . our Christmas music streaming habits . . . and how much people give to charity this time of year.
And according to the results, the state with the most Christmas spirit is . . . Washington.
The top ten states for Christmas spirit are Washington . . . South Dakota . . . Utah . . . Missouri . . . Maine . . . Tennessee . . . Alabama . . . Arkansas . . . Virginia . . . and North Carolina.
Alaska ranked LAST in Christmas spirit, followed by Hawaii. So apparently the spirit fades once you’re outside the lower 48.
The ten states with the lowest level of Christmas spirit are Alaska . . . Hawaii . . . Florida . . . New Jersey . . . Michigan . . . Nevada . . . Minnesota . . . Arizona . . . California . . . and New Mexico.
