‘Immigrants must celebrate Christmas to be Danish’: DPP

The anti-immigration Danish People’s Party is demanding that immigrants celebrate Christian festivals such as Christmas and Easter if they want to call themselves ‘Danish’.

“Going to church,” the party’s immigration spokesman Martin Henriksen added, would at least put new arrivals “on the right track”.

The call came after a week when Denmark’s parliament revisited the vexed question of what it means to be a Dane.
