In some parts of German-speaking countries, you will find a Maibaum (may pole) around May 1st. That’s a decorated tree, which is set up in the days before May 1st. Some sources say that the Maibaum is a symbol for youth, life and fertility. Maybe, the pagan Germanic tribes had similar traditions, although this is not completely proofed.
In some regions in Bavaria and Austria, there are dances, parties and other traditions. There are some areas where it’s even a tradition for young men to steal the Maibaum of a neighboring village, and so prove their courage.
Are you from a region where there are traditions related to the Maibaum? Maybe you can explain some of them.
