Nothing says ‘Happy Holidays’ like a healthy dose of nostalgia—and what better way to feel the spirit of the season than watching a holiday classic.
A new poll of 2,000 Americans who celebrate the festive season found it was the top tradition—with 72% choosing the tradition of watching Christmas movies, beating out decorating the tree (66%) and baking cookies (55%).
Among the top-watched shows during the season are A Charlie Brown Christmas (42%), Home Alone (42%), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (35%), The Polar Express (32%), A Christmas Story (31%), and White Christmas (30%).
But, the most beloved holiday movie to watch during the holiday? It’s a Wonderful Life.
Their favorite holiday character was Kevin McCallister in Home Alone (30%) and Tim Allen who plays the jolly toymaker in The Santa Clause (29%).
Commissioned by global streaming media platform Plex and conducted by OnePoll, the random double-opt-in survey found that 52% believe that watching holiday movies helps them bond with their family.
The top TV favorites of the festive season are Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (60%), Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town (37%), Friends “The One With the Holiday Armadillo” (19%), and South Park “Christmas Snow” (14%).
