States That Love Christmas the Most

The holiday season of 2022 is just around the corner and with it comes the joyous spirit of Christmas. For many, this is a time to celebrate family, love, and tradition while taking part in festive activities such as visiting holiday markets, decorating trees and homes, caroling, and exchanging gifts. But what states have the most Christmas spirit? Here we take a look at some of America’s top locations for getting into that special yuletide feeling.

New Hampshire holds the number one spot for most Christmas spirit in 2022 due to its many seasonal attractions. From classic carols playing through the streets of Manchester to winter wonderlands in Concord, there are countless ways for locals and visitors alike to enjoy a festive atmosphere. The White Mountains offer great opportunities for outdoor exploration during this time too, from skiing down slopes blanketed in snow to night-time sleigh rides under twinkling stars.

Wisconsin takes second place on our list of states with the greatest Christmas cheer due to its array of winter activities and events. Ice skating rinks across cities like Milwaukee come alive at this time, while traditional German celebrations such as Christkindlmarket fill downtown areas with lights and music. With more than 10,000 lakes spread across its terrain, Wisconsin also provides plenty of opportunity for scenic boat journeys along frosty shores – an experience you won’t soon forget!

Other notable places which deserve an honorable mention on our list include Pennsylvania (known especially for its Christmas markets), Ohio (great variety of festive activities) Kentucky (number one location in North America for light shows), Indiana (stunning holiday decorations at Indianapolis Zoo), New Jersey (miles upon miles of beautiful beaches) Delaware (the only state with two coastlines) Vermont (beautiful rolling hills make ideal sledding terrain) Michigan (famous ice sculptures) Alaska (spectacular natural beauty). So wherever you may be this coming yuletide season remember that these 50 United States all offer their own unique way to spread some joyous Christmas cheer – may your days be merry and bright!

The overall Holiday Spirit for Christmas ranking is determined by factors such as search trends for different holiday terms, the rate of holiday shopping on Google, and the results of the survey of 1,000 Americans.
