This Map Of Each State’s Favorite Christmas Movie Proves Florida Makes No Sense

We’ve all heard it before: Die Hard is a Christmas movie and yada, yada, yada. Frankly, it doesn’t really matter, as the spirit of Christmas is what you make it. Whether you enjoy the holiday because of the food, the family, the gifts, or Bruce Willis’ bald head, that’s your prerogative.

What’s far more interesting is not whether you consider something a Christmas movie or not, but which one you consider your favorite.

For example, good ol’ Kentucky has chosen Elf as their favorite Christmas movie, a reasonable selection by all accounts. Delaware went for A Christmas Story, another classic choice. Tennessee reps A Christmas Carol, while North Dakota loves Home Alone. Par for the course, right? Right.

But then there are states like Texas, who enjoys cozying up by a fire and watching … Gremlins (?) during the holiday season. Or Florida, who loves to throw on … Batman Returns?

Look, I have no problem with someone considering something a Christmas movie, but putting Gremlins and Batman Returns over the likes of Home Alone and Elf just warps my brain.

Christmas should be about family, not about Danny DeVito being squeezed into a rotting penguin suit.
