From shopping to family reunions, the holidays can be downright scary.

So it makes sense that Tim Burton's 1993 flick The Nightmare Before Christmas was the most searched holiday movie of 2011, according to Bing's search results.

Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel's 2003 hit Elf was the second most-searched holiday movie as of October 2011, while Halloween flicks like Halloween, Gremlins and Edward Scissorhands took the next spots. 

In 2010, based on the entire year's searches, A Christmas Story (1983) was the most searched holiday film, followed by It's a Wonderful Life (1946), The Polar Express (2004) and White Christmas (1954). Elf came in fifth according to Bing's search results, followed by Tim Allen's 1994 smash The Santa Clause.
