Poll: Most Germans want to abandon Christmas lights “to combat climate change”

A new poll has revealed that most Germans are in favor of reducing or abandoning Christmas lights entirely to help fight climate change.

The poll, carried out by YouGov, revealed that 57 percent of Germans who were surveyed reported that they would limit and stop using Christmas lights altogether due to environmental concerns, Deutsche Welle reports.

Among those who were surveyed, 11 percent said they wouldn’t have any Christmas lights at all this year to combat climate change. Another 10 percent said they scrap the tradition in the future, while 35 percent reported that turning off the Christmas lights was simply not an option for them.

Regarding whether or not Germans believe there should be fewer lights on public buildings and in the streets, opinions were split, with 44 percent in favor of and 44 percent against. Just 12 percent said they didn’t know.

Germany certainly isn’t alone in its abandonment of long-held traditions. Elsewhere in the West, such as Britain and the United States, the simple act of wishing another person Happy Christmas is now widely considered to be act of aggression against people from other cultures.
