Same here. Never put a location to holidays. I put a sense of scene on certain holidays such as Christmas it should be snowy and cold. But rarely a place.

Random sidetrack question...

For those of you who grew up in areas that didn’t look/feel like the ‘traditional’ Halloween/Christmas (I.e. no fall deciduous foliage, no snow) in places like AZ, southernCA,FL etc what was your experiences watching all those movies set in the NE/Midwest? We’re you confused?

That song is also why I associate Pennsylvania with Christmas. I'm sure it's a great Christmas state as is, but that song definitely makes it seem more Christmassy lol
