What are you most thankful for this holiday season? If you live in California, it might be YouTube.

On the heels of Thanksgiving, Facebook looked at posts in the United States containing words like "grateful" and "thankful" to find what people were grateful for by state. 

In Oregon, it was yoga. Kansas was most thankful forGoogle. Many of the Southern states, including Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, were thankful for God. In Michigan, people celebrated having electricity while Vermont and New Hampshire gave thanks to Pinterest and Netflix, respectively. 

Overall, the top ten things people were most thankful for included "friends," "family," "husband" and "children."

"One of the first things we discovered is that the people who participated in this challenge were overwhelmingly women: 90% of people who participated identified as female on their profile," the Facebook note reads"There are a number of explanations for why this might be: women may be more likely to participate in challenges such as this; women may be more likely to nominate other women than men; women may be more willing to share what they are grateful for on Facebook; etc. To be clear, we think it is unlikely that women are actually more grateful than men."

Read the full breakdown and see how the information was compiled here.
