White Amsterdam school scraps Easter for Muslim festival
A school in Amsterdam is going to stop celebrating Easter. Since the establishment of the school, it has stuck to Western Christian traditions such as the Easter breakfast.

But from this year onwards, the Theo Thijssenschool will be celebrating a Muslim holiday instead.
Easter breakfast has no place in a “multicultural” society, it seems. Children from non-Western cultures should not be part of an Easter breakfast, the school believes. Sadly there are few such children in this particular school.
The school nevertheless says it wants to pay more attention to “the different customs within different cultures”. That includes the banning of Dutch traditions, including Zwarte Pieten which have already been replaced.
In its place comes the Sugar Festival. In a leaked message, the school states that it will be announced in classes why the Easter breakfast does not really make sense and why the Sugar Festival is a better option in the Netherlands.
The Theo Thijssenschool is in the Jordaan district of Amsterdam, an expensive area where white European leftist and far-leftist wealthy politicians and NGO activists live. According to online outlet Geenstijl, the children in the school are “whiter than a pack of yogurt” since there are hardly any Muslims in the school.
All those white “poorly integrated students” at home still celebrate Easter, Christmas and Assumption, the online outlet remarked wryly. That is why “day care volunteers” will be helping them to make sense of the Islamic Sugar Holiday.
The school has since apparently received many complaints, because in a follow-up letter from the headmistress Francesca Hand, she said it would not be replacing Easter breakfast with the Muslim feast, but scrapping breakfast altogether for the older children because of “limited time”. The younger children however will still be celebrating the Islamic holiday.
The Sugar Festival (Seker Bayram or Eid ul-Fitr) is the three day festival following Ramadan. Bayram is the term used in Turkish for holidays celebrated nation-wide, both official and religious.
The name comes by courtesy of the special and mostly sweet food served to visitors. It is strictly forbidden to fast the first day of the holiday, so a light breakfast is recommended as a sign of not fasting that day.
Afterwards, the men perform the Bayram (Eid) prayer in their neighbourhood mosques.
