Everyone's favorite Christmas movie that isn't Die Hard

Data: Survey Monkey online polls conducted Nov. 10-17 among 6,075 U.S. adults and 802 teens. Total error margins are ±2.0 and ±4.0 percentage points for adults and teens respectively; Poll methodology; Chart: Chris Canipe/Axios

"It's a Wonderful Life" is the most popular Christmas movie in America, but that's mainly because the over-35 crowd likes it, according to an Axios/SurveyMonkey poll. "Home Alone" is way more popular with teens and young adults.

Between the lines: "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Elf" are more popular among the younger set. "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" has one specific audience: boomers and Gen-Xers who know who Chevy Chase is. And the big lesson: not enough people have seen "Die Hard."

Methodology: The data on adults are based on a SurveyMonkey online poll conducted among adults ages 18 and older in the United States. Respondents were selected from the more than 2 million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. Data have been weighted for age, race, sex, education, and geography. The survey was conducted Dec. 10-17 among 6,075 adults. The modeled error estimate  for the full sample is plus or minus 2 percentage points and full crosstabs are available here.

The data on teens come from a SurveyMonkey online poll conducted among teenagers age 13-17 in the United States. Respondents were sampled from SurveyMonkey Audience, a nonprobability online panel. Data have been weighted for age, race, sex, education, and geography. The survey was conducted Dec. 10-16 among 802 teens. The modeled error estimate  for the full sample is plus or minus 4 percentage points and full crosstabs are available here.
