Trulia combed through home listings nationwide from January 2011 to June 2013 looking for key words, such as chimney and fireplace.

“In the spirit of helping house-hunters maximize their chances of a future visit from Santa, we decided to ask a very important question: Where are homes best equipped for Christmas?”
