HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Christmas may be synonymous with Connecticut in terms of holiday movies.

From the classic Christmas in Connecticut to a slew of newer Hallmark and Netflix films, the state left its mark on Hollywood this time of year.

The most popular Christmas movie in Connecticut, however, doesn’t take place in the state. It’s set in Chicago.

The website Wishlisted posted its list of The Most Popular Christmas Movies by State. On it, Connecticut’s favorite was National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

Wishlisted said it ran 25 films from IMDb’s Top 100 Christmas movies of all time list through every state on Google Trends.

Other movies on the list for other states included It’s a Wonderful Life, The Shop Around the Corner, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Love Actually and Die Hard.
