Millennials, Gen X, and Baby Boomers can’t seem to agree on much…and that includes Christmas movies! But at least disagreeing about your favorite holiday flick won’t lead to name-calling or passive-aggressive tweets. Right?

According to a new YouGov survey, “Home Alone” is the most popular Christmas movie for the average American adult. It’s also the clear number one choice for Millennials. That makes sense since they were kids when it opened in theaters. “Elf” was second for Millennials, while “A Christmas Story” came in third.

In the jaded eyes of Generation X, you just can’t beat “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” That movie came out only one year before “Home Alone” but its star, Chevy Chase, is considerably older than Macaulay Culkin. My generation rounded out the top three with “A Christmas Story” and “Elf.”

Then there are the Baby Boomers. For their generation, Christmas movies reached their apex in 1946 with the release of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” “Miracle on 34th St,” from 1947, came in a distant second. What a difference a year makes. That was followed by “A Christmas Story.”

The survey provided some other insights, too. For example, Boomers really don’t like “Elf” and I’m not sure why. Is Buddy too hyper or are they simply not Will Ferrell fans? I also think it’s interesting that, even though “Home Alone” ranks as the most popular Christmas movie overall, “A Christmas Story” was the only film to crack the top three for all three generations. The saga of Ralphie Parker is this Gen Xers favorite. You can see the rest of the results HERE.
