As soon as you saw the headline, didn't a little bit of you immediately think that New Jersey's top decoration might be a little underwhelming? Not that we don't decorate well. As a matter of fact, I'd put our Christmas decorating skills up against anyone, but when you find out this is a national list, you start to wonder. We never do well on those.

So, this list is a national list of the top Christmas decorations in each state. I can see it coming already. Every other state gets a legitimate decoration, and we get a hanging pizza slice on the tree or a Snooki star for the top. Oh, haha I get it. They didn't even put the Grinch on us, although they did put him on Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.

But it turns out that, not only did we get a good decoration, we got possibly the best one. And we're the only state that has this amazing symbol of the season listed as their favorite. Thank you Realtor.com!

Congratulations to us for having Santa as the top decoration in all of New Jersey. It's not the Christmas tree like it is in a half dozen other states, or a wreath or garland like many other states have.

We are the sole state to have the very representative of our childhood Christmases, Santa Claus himself, as our favorite, and when you think of it, Santa is everywhere in this state right now.

We're no fools. The man who brings the gifts is the man we love the most here in the Garden State. So, it looks like Santa Claus belongs to us. And we love it.
