Oh by golly! Washington state has the best Christmas spirit

Washington state ranked No. 1 with the best Christmas spirit.

Turns out, Washingtonians are on the nice list. The Evergreen State ranked No. 1 for having the best Christmas Spirit in the nation, according to a new survey.

The survey conducted by GetCenturyLink looked at two factors to determine a state's overall Christmas spirit: Online activity and area culture.

Online activity was measured based on the state's overall Google searches for Christmas-related things like Christmas movies, music, ornaments, etc. as well as whether or not folks tweeted about Christmas. The area culture looked at how many Christmas farms were in the state and the amount of charity.

The three states with the best Christmas spirit: Washington, South Dakota, Maine.
