Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
In the Veluwe village of Nunspeet, the preacher of the Gereformeerde Gemeente
a fundamentalist Christian church
The reason is the So this is Christmas event. That will be held on the market square this weekend, including a musical about the birth of Jesus. The Reverend Schot has distributed a glossy leaflet in which he condemns the event. …
“We don’t need this in Nunspeet”, he says to Omroep Gelderland regional broadcaster.
The flyer went down the wrong way with Sander Klugt, the organizer of the event. “The leaflet is also about Christmas trees and eating together, which is not done, apparently. But to be honest, we are the only ones who actually pay attention to the Christmas story.”
Mr Klugt’s event is not on Christmas day itself. So, one can hardly say it competes with Christmas church services.
