Yes, there is another study. Yes, it includes a ranking. Yes, New Jersey is on the list.
This survey claims to rank each state based on what they like to decorate for Christmas and what is the most popular individual decoration in that state.
I won’t keep you waiting for the Garden State numbers: we don’t decorate as much as the other states, ranked # 27 (since there wasn’t enough data from all of the states, only 38 were listed).
Our most popular individual Christmas decoration is Santa Claus, which is only ranked 10th nationally. In fact, the Grinch was the most popular decoration in more states than Santa Claus.
The methodology included both a survey of over 1,000 Americans and a review of the most popular Google vacation searches.
The state that puts everything in Christmas decoration is Ohio, while the second place goes to our neighbors to the west in Pennsylvania. New York, on the other hand, is more like Grinch, ranking 32nd in the country.
Other interesting facts from the survey:
More and more Americans are starting their Christmas decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving. The average amount spent on decorations is $ 70 and most people spend about three hours decorating.
