Der Maibaum
Submitted by kiwi on 2007-03-09 08:20:10 (via www.geocities.com)
There is a very curious tradition down in the south of Germany: Der Maibaum or the Maypole. An entire procession and a true challenge of force and endurance in trying to bring this long, ton-weighting pole into a vertical position, using human muscle power only. The process takes about two hours... boy!
