If you’re sick of hearing Mariah Carey’s "All I Want For Christmas Is You" on movie soundtracks, you’ll be glad to know it’s not the most common Christmas song in films—in fact, not by a long shot. This knowledge comes courtesy of the website FiveThirtyEight, which analyzed IMDB data to identify the most popular holiday tunes in movies over the years.

"Jingle Bells" ended up being the clear winner, followed by "Auld Lang Syne" and "Silent Night." Check out the top 10 via Forbes and Statista.
