With Christmas less than a week away, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. And not just because of the gifts tucked under the tree.

No, we’re talking about Christmas movies — and lots of them. So what’s the most popular Christmas movie in Oregon? None other than Home Alone, which was ranked No. 1 by CableTV.com. For Washington, the top pick was Scrooged.

The website took top-rated holiday movies as ranked by viewers at AMC (American Movie Classics) and cross-referenced the results with Google Trends in each state over the past decade to determine the most popular films.

The most popular movie across the country is 2003’s Elf, which stars Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf, who is on a quest to find his long-lost father in New York City. The second-most popular film is Home Alone, which was the top movie in nine states.
