America’s favorite Christmas movies seem to be “It’s A Wonderful Life” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

A poll conducted by CivicScience and published Tuesday broke movies into live-action and animated, so it’s unclear what movie is actually the number one favorite. However, your favorite probably did make the list.

For live-action, “It’s A Wonderful Life” came in first followed by “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” “A Christmas Story,” “Home Alone,” “Miracle On 34th Street,” “White Christmas” and “Elf,” according to the poll. (RELATED: The Best Christmas Movies To Watch This Holiday Season)

I’ve actually never seen “It’s A Wonderful Life,” but that makes sense because apparently 39% of Americans make it a point to watch the same Christmas movies every year, according to the survey. For my family, it’s “A Year Without A Santa Claus,” “How The Grinch Stole Christmas and “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

For animated movies, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” came in first followed by “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Frosty The Snowman” and “The Muppet Christmas Carol.”

Do people not watch “A Year Without A Santa Claus?” That’s the best Christmas movie by far.

It’s so interesting that most Americans watch the same movies every year. I guess Christmas is marked by tradition. What movies will you be watching this Holiday season?
