Fa-la-la-la-la and all the festive fun! This is the season for cheer and Christmas fun for most everywhere.  So if you are looking for the best place to visit to feel the festive you should look up West Virginia?! If you are feeling Grinchy and want to find your people you should book a trip to New York?! Colorado sits on the Grinchy side which surprised me a LOT! They ranked the Christmas spirit of all 50 states by looking at Google searches for things like Christmas decorations, Christmas songs, and wrapping paper. Also their is a new #1 for the most Googled Christmas term this year … “ugly Christmas sweaters”. Here are the details: www.innerbody.com
