To find out, CenturyLinkQuote has discovered the most popular ‘90s Christmas movie in every state, so you can enjoy some festive fun this holiday season. To do so, they compiled a list of 60 Christmas movies from the 1990s by referencing various media publications like Bustle and PopSugar. Then, they used Semrush to determine which 15 movies had the most overall search volume. Finally, they put those 15 movies into Google Trends and ranked them by state search volume in 2022.
