Canada tops the world when it comes to ‘Most Christmassy Countries’

If walking around in the snow with Christmas lights shining around you brings you joy, you’re living in the right country.

In a recent set of rankings published by Taxi2Airport, Canada topped the list of the ‘Most Christmassy Countries’ in the world.

Now, we’re not entirely sure if Christmassy is an actual word, but it gets the point across and it’s hard to argue with Canada’s ranking as number one.

Countries were ranked on five pieces of criteria, receiving a score between one (lowest) and five (highest).

Canada received four out of five for ‘Chance of Snow,’ ‘Christmas Search Interest’ and ‘Christian Population.’

Unsurprisingly, Canada scored a perfect five out of five when it comes to ‘Christmas Music,’ something you hear everywhere during December.

As for the final category, ‘Christmas Travel Recognition,’ Canada scored just two out of five, but every single country on the list also got either one or two with the exception of a perfect five for the United States.

Behind Canada, Norway was second on the list and was followed by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Finland to round out the top five.

Lithuania, Sweden, the U.S., the United Kingdom and Ireland ranked from six to 10.
