A recent survey has ranked Michigan in the bottom 10 states with the worst Christmas spirit in the U.S.

Century Link recently published a study using the following methodology:

Online Activity

  • Google searches for Christmas movies and gingerbread houses (29%)
  • Google shopping trends for wrapping paper, Christmas cards, Christmas ornaments, and “elf on a shelf” (28%)
  • Number of Christmas songs streamed (14.5%)
  • Number of tweets related to Christmas (7%)

Area Culture 

  • Number of Christmas tree farms per capita (7%)
  • Amount of charitable donations (14.5%)

Where did Michigan land in this study?  #41.  It sounds like lots of Michiganders are getting coal in their stockings this year.  Here's a look at the full list.  And yes, Ohio best us...again. :(
