It’s the most wonderful year around the world, and particularly in Canada.
This according to a new ranking that places Canada as the number one most Christmassy country in the world. It even beat out Norway, which is a tough competitor with the recent spotting of an adorable white baby reindeer!
“Every country has slightly different traditions, and every continent differs even more so,” reads the ranking by Taxi2Airport. “Some cities will celebrate Christmas in grand style, other with local traditions and customs, and everything in between.”
With so many different traditions, the ranking analyzed festive data, including Christmas travel recognition, the chance of snow, and the popularity of Christmas music.
“Canada ranked in the number one spot thanks to the impressive amount the population listens to Christmas music; the country ranked in eighth place out of 55 countries looked at by Spotify, and their most distinctive yuletide anthem is Sarah McLachlan’s Away in a Manager,” states the ranking.
“The country also had the sixth highest chance of a white Christmas, with World Weather Online predicting a 43.55% chance of snow on Christmas day. From skiing with Santa at the world-renowned Whistler Blackcomb ski resort to ice skating around Lake Louise – hailed ‘the world’s best-skating rink’ – and riding in a horse-drawn sleigh in Sun Peaks, it’s easy to see why Canada topped our festive countries index.”
