Does listening to xmas music make one a hypocrite?

My husband and I were in the car the other day, and I flipped it to a station that happened to be playing xmas music (anyone in the Detroit metro area knows this station). He immediately called me a hypocrite. I said, "I am not."  I enjoy listening to it this time of year because it's fun. When the religious crap, um, songs come on, I switch the station.

I got to thinking later, am I being a hypocrite, listening to music based on an xian holiday? Am I confusing my kids telling them one thing (god is make believe) while participating (singing) in the opposite?

Is this something for me to think about, or simply let it go as ridiculous?
