Glasgow has made it to the top of another list, and this time it’s to do with Christmassy-ness. There are so many reasons to argue why our city might be the most festive, but Abbott Lyon has put all debates to rest as they have discovered which city in the UK has the most holiday cheer. Our Glasgow was not only deemed the UK’s most Christmassy city, but also the city with the best ice rinks.
One might wonder what is needed to reach the status of ultimate Christmassy vibes: in order to rank the cities, the data looked at was the average Google reviews of each individual market and ice skating rinks in each city, the number of monthly searches for Christmas lights and Christmas decorations, as well as the likelihood of a white Christmas.
Glasgow outranks every other city in the UK as the most Christmassy city in the country, scoring immensely in almost all of the festive criteria.
Glasgow ranked in the top three for most of the categories and number one for the city with the majority Christmas decorations searches (2,400), as well as highly-rated ice-skating rinks (4.7) and with a good chance of a white Christmas: basically, Glasgow is officially the most Christmassy city in the UK.
