When it comes to Christmastime, people often fondly remember a Norman Rockwell or Thomas Kincade-esque scene with soft, glowing lights, gently fallen snow, and folks dressed for the occasion while treating others with a little more courtesy than they normally would because of the time of year.

According to Newsweek, Century Link reported that for the second year in a row, New Hampshire has the most Christmas spirit in the U.S.

Newsweek reported the following on how Century Link came up with its findings:

The first category, Christmas-themed online activity, weighted 78.5 percent of the total ranking. Google searches for two key terms, "Christmas movies" and "Gingerbread houses" weighted at 29 percent—14.5 percent each.

Other metrics also taken into consideration in the ranking include Christmas music streaming, tweets about Christmas, Christmas-related cultural markers, the number of Christmas tree farms per capita, and, last but not least, charitable giving in the last documented tax year.

As someone who appreciates and partakes in the Christmas season to the point some have called me “Mr. Christmas,” it’s nice to see there are still some places where traditional American attitudes towards certain holidays, like Christmas, are still revered and kept up in the face of the politically correct crowd determined to ruin everything good.

The report noted that Wisconsin came in second place, and not ironically, Washington D.C. came in last in Christmas spirit for the third year in a row.
