Since we live in an age where everything needs to be measured and quantified, I suppose Christmas spirit isn't immune from the statistics nerds.  Century Link recently ranked Christmas spirit in each state by looking at things like: Christmas related google searches, online shopping for decorations, streaming Christmas music, movies, etc.

According to their tests, Montana ranks 39th for Christmas spirit.  Looking at the blinding lights, inflatable snowmen and plastic Santas blanketing our neighborhoods I have to believe that it must be some other cities in the state not holding up their end.  Thanks a lot, Butte.
