Everybody’s Google search history is probably a little wonky…but what are you Googling about this Thanksgiving season?

We’ve all been there before. Googling things we need the answers to. Whether you’re sick or you don’t know how to do something or if you have a question that you don’t know the answer to so you Google it and end up in a rabbit hole of useless information. Yep, like I said…we’ve all been there. Google searches tend to go up during the Holidays, especially a heavy cooking holiday like Thanksgiving.

CenturyLink used Google Trends to look at search volume around Thanksgiving-related terms around the holiday last year. After that, they determined each state’s score based on how much more a state searched that term than the other states.

Below are the top Thanksgiving related searches and which states are guilty of googling them the most.
