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.
I enjoy some of it, but never seek it out. There are several choral arrangements of which I am quite fond.
Yes I still listen to seasonal music, as long as it's none of the overly religious songs like say O' Holy Night or God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. Songs like Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer and Sleigh Ride are still fun to listen to.
Oh, Boney M is eternal, and timeless!
