Study finds Wash­ing­ton, DC least fes­tive in the US

The nation’s cap­i­tal Wash­ing­ton, D.C., is the least fes­tive of the Unit­ed States, accord­ing to a study.
Inner­body Research ana­lyzed online search data to see from where the most fes­tive search­es were com­ing. While oth­ers searched for “ugly Christ­mas sweaters” and inspi­ra­tion for “secret San­ta gift exchanges,” DC had the fewest search­es sur­round­ing the hol­i­days.

Last year, Wash­ing­ton, D.C., was ranked the 18th most fes­tive state. The White House opened pub­lic tours for the first time since the out­break of the coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic in 2022. The White House is noto­ri­ous for its excep­tion­al Christ­mas decor with­in its walls.
Among D.C. search­es, the No. 1 hol­i­day-relat­ed search sur­round­ed Christ­mas trees. This could have some­thing to do with the 2023 Capi­tol Christ­mas tree, a 63-foot Nor­way spruce dec­o­rat­ed with over 5,000 orna­ments and rough­ly 5,000 LED lights. Nation­wide, Christ­mas trees did not make the top five list of most-searched phras­es.
