I grew up listening to Boney M, especially their Christmas album, and it reminds me of a time when our family was together, innocence, and carries that festive vibe about it.
With their lyrics heavily based on Christian faith/Jesus, even as an Atheist, I still play it during this time of year. The poll question is focused on if you choose to listen to it. NOTE: Walking into a department store / (or any place other than yours) hearing it in the distance doesn't count as choice since you have not control over that.
I didn’t participate in the poll because it didn’t have an option for my view.
First of all, I’m not an atheist.
I don’t choose to listen to Christmas music or any other seasonal music during any particular time of year.
But neither do I avoid it. It’s all just a part of the background of the culture I inhabit.
