Conquering The Holidays

According to a new study, Michigan is one of the “Grinchiest” states in America, but who can blame us? It’s 20 degrees out with a windchill of -5!

Century Link‘s data team took the time to rank each state to determine who has the most and least holiday cheer. (Also, where do we sign up for that job?) They had two key categories, online activity and area culture, and Michigan came in at #41 on the list.

Online activity included things like: Google searches for Christmas movies and gingerbread houses, Google shopping trends for wrapping paper, Christmas cards, Christmas ornaments, and “elf on a shelf”, number of Christmas songs streamed and number of tweets related to Christmas.

Area culture included number of Christmas tree farms per capita and amount of charitable donations. Read more about what was said about Michigan HERE and cue up ‘Christmas Vacation!’
