Poll Names the Top Holiday Song, Top Holiday Movie

Dec 21, 2018  •  Post A Comment

A new poll lists the top holiday songs, and in the No. 1 spot is the chestnut “Silent Night,” followed by “Jingle Bells.”

The poll was conducted earlier this month by AP-NORC, surveying 1,067 U.S. adults.

“Silent Night” was mentioned by 12% of respondents, with “Jingle Bells” cited by 8%. Tied for third at 5% are “White Christmas” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” with the latter song’s profile presumably elevated by a recent #MeToo controversy over its lyrics.

Movies and TV specials are grouped together, with “It’s a Wonderful Life” topping the list, named by 9% of respondents. Second place is a tie between “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “A Christmas Story,” each with a 7% response.
