The Best Christmas Movie in Texas

Crunching metrics with an interesting array of data, Preply tried to figure out, state by state, what the top holiday movies are.

They looked at sites like Rotten Tomatoes and Box Office Mojo, and tabulated search data from the web.

In Texas, it’s The Polar Express, a favorite shared with Arkansas, both Carolinas, Tennessee, Georgia and Arizona. Who knew?

It was a 2004 computer animated film directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump) that cost $165 million to make, based on a 1985 book.

The top films in America are more recognizable.

1.) Home Alone

2.) The Grinch

3.) Elf

4.) Edward Scissorhands

5.) Happiest Season

Happiest Season? It came out last year. What happened to “It’s a Wonderful Life,” and “Miracle on 34th Street?”
