Question for you, followers!

If you have religious family members, how do you feel about participating in holiday celebrations with them? Do you celebrate secularly, boycott, play along to make your relatives happy…?

Working on a humanist playlist to share here.

Any and all genres; literal or figurative. Is there a song—lyrical or instrumental—that reminds you of your humanist or atheist beliefs?
