Have you ever wondered what everyone around you is Googling?
Everyone is glued to their phone, especially during the holiday season! With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s no surprise that tons of people across the country are looking up recipes, ideas for their family get-togethers, and–as you can see from the map above–all kinds of other things!
In fact, during this time of year, Googlers here in Tennessee share a common interest with residents of 9 other states. A number of us are asking Google “What is Thanksgiving?”
Are there any trends that surprise you? We were surprised that there weren’t more people looking to eat out on Thanksgiving. Seriously! We’re living in an age of ridiculously delicious take-out.
More interesting trends:
- Whether you pronounce it “pee-can” or “pick-ahn,” several Southern states, including Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi, are looking to Google for the best pecan pie recipes.
- Even though pumpkins and pumpkin pie are two things that come to mind when you think “Thanksgiving,” the only state that is Googling those terms the most is Alaska.
- Football is a Thanksgiving staple for many people, and it’s the most-searched trend 5 of the 48 states.
- The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been around for decades, and it’s not too surprising that it’s the most popular search term on Thanksgiving. It’s honestly a little more surprising that it’s the only state for which it’s the top trend, considering how big of a deal this Parade is!
- For some reason, Missouri is worried about Canadian Thanksgiving, and three of the original British colonies — New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Viriginia — are all wondering if our friends in England are celebrating Turkey Day.
