Denmark: Schools drop Christmas traditions out of consideration for Muslim students
Islam in Europe
Schools are increasingly changing Christmas tradition in order to take into account a growing number of bilingual children.
At the Klostervænget school in Copenhagen, the school administration changed a few verses in the 'A Child is Born in Bethlehem' hymn sung by the children because they thought it would be preaching too much to the bilingual children.
At Møllevang school in Aarhus the school administration asked a music teacher to choose hymns that took into account the Muslim students, after students in a 3rd grade class and their parents protested that the children were expected to sing "Here come your little ones, Jesus".
