The City was announced Wednesday that this year is no traditional Christmas tree on the Grand Place. In its place there is a light sculpture in the shape of a tree, an "electronic Christmas tree."
Debaets is not happy with that decision. "After the 'Christmas' not 'Christmas', but more could be called" winter fun "should now another element killed that too much could refer to Christmas," she says.
"Not that the Christmas tree or a Christian religious symbol, but the tree bears obviously a reference to Christmas itself. I suspect that the exact reference of the tree henceforth banished from the Market. And that's a shame. "
Debaets think a historical and multireligious city to keep the traditions alive and should allow all ideologies. "For a lot of people who are not Christians, the tree there," she concluded from the responses she received from residents and traders.
"What next?" Asks Debaets wondered. "All eggs from the city because they refer to Easter? If the new style of the brand new Brussels city I hold my breath. "
According to Nicolas Dassonville, spokesman for Mayor Thielemans (PS), the change has nothing to do with anti-religious motives. "In that case we would still have deleted the crib?" says he brusselnieuws.be. "But that remains, and it is indeed not that there is not a tree. Contrary, by a light work to do, we emphasize the tree just more. He is more than ever central to the Market."
