About an hour South East of St. Cloud you will find a northern suburb of the Twin Cities that has a lot going on. A large outdoor shopping mall, the rapper Sisqo calls it home, and it has one of the top 10 highest holiday budgets in the country! Maple Grove is going all out this year!

The average person spends roughly $1,000 on the Christmas season every year, but this year Maple Grove is projected to spend $2,156, putting them in 10th place overall for highest holiday budgets across America.


Here is how the top 10 laid out:

  1. Flower Mound, TX - $2,761
  2. Sunnyvale, CA - $2,575
  3. Naperville, IL - $2,528
  4. Mountain View, CA - $2,524
  5. The Woodlands, TX - $2,444
  6. Bellevue, WA - $2,411
  7. Sugar Land, TX - $2,321
  8. Allen, TX - $2,244
  9. Pearland, TX - $2,238
  10. Maple Grove, MN - $2,156

I didn't realize that Texas was so into Christmas spending. They claimed five of the top 10 spots. Honorable mention also goes to Eagan, MN for repping MN, and coming in number 23 on the list with a budget of $1,730.
