Word Clouds of Christmas

By Max Candocia

December 21, 2017

This December, I surveyed a 312 users from Reddit, Facebook, and, to a lesser extent, other social media sources on how they celebrated (or didn't celebrate) Christmas. You can find an active version of the survey here. I automatically generate a good portion of this article, so I may update it in the future.

Overview

This is the third (and shortest) article in the series. Here, I show some word clouds to the prompt: "Describe Christmas in three words". I have an overall word cloud, followed by four more word clouds that consist of the following:

  1. People who don't celebrate Christmas
  2. People who are atheist/agnostic
  3. Christians of any kind
  4. People who follow non-Christian religions

Source Code

I have the source code for my analysis on GitHub here. All the responses (after removing timestamp/order info) will be released once I finish my article series.
