After weeks of drama that have included a five-hour aggressive meeting attended by international media, death threats against the culture minister and numerous prominent voices expressing concern that one local association’s decision was sounding the death knell for Danish values, there is now a Christmas tree in the Egedalsvænge housing association in Kokkedal.

The tree was raised to the top of the housing association’s garden pavilion on Friday. 

In response, the ‘anti-Islamification’ group Stop Islamiseringen af Danmark (SIAD) called off planned protests originally scheduled for the weekend. 

The tree made its appearance just two days after the housing association selected a new chairman and two new “Christmas tree-friendly members”.
