A traditional Maypole. Often found in May funnily enough - a tall pole with ribbons from it - and a dance performed around it - Hmmmmm England eh?

  4. In Germany is almost the same tradition with the May tree. But it is not my land, but I know it because I'm teaching their language : its name is Maibaum.

  5. I understand that this tradition was still alive in America in the middle of the last century. But I haven't seen a Maypole here in my entire life. Perhaps I should erect one next May.
