Survey: ‘Home Alone’ most searched ‘90s Christmas movie in New Jersey

With less than three weeks to go until Christmas, many in New Jersey may be sitting down with family and friends to watch a holiday-themed movie.
A new survey from CenturyLink found that when it comes to Christmas movies, particularly ones made in the 1990s, “Home Alone” was the most Googled Christmas movie in New Jersey. It was also the top searched movie in 13 other states, including New York and Illinois, where the movie takes place.
Released on Nov. 16, 1990, “Home Alone” tells the story of Kevin McCallister, who must protect his home from two would-be burglars after being accidentally left home alone while his family goes away on vacation.
The movie became an instant classic.
The iconic Illinois home from the first movie is even available to rent on Airbnb on Dec. 12.
Rounding out the top 3 of the CenturyLink survey was 1996’s “Jingle All The Way” and 1994’s “The Santa Clause.”
