Taxi2Airport just released a list of the 25 most “Christmassy” countries in the world, and Canada stole the top spot.
The list measures countries across the globe based on Christmas travel recognition, the chance of snow, Christian population, Christmas search interest, and the popularity of Christmas music.
The taxi booking platform notes, however, that each country has its own festive traditions. For example, Japan doesn’t celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday. Instead, the island nation uses the time to spread happiness and eat fried chicken. In fact, a number of families will actually place orders to KFC in advance.
With that in mind, the report depicts Christmas as “the most magical time of year.” Further, it notes that for many, the season is synonymous with snow, carols, lights and sprawling markets filled with merry cheer.

Following Canada, the top ten “Christmassy Countries” list goes in the following order:
