Exceptional But Recurring Trees

Maibäume in Mühlhausen, Uhlbach und Wangen (v.l.n.r.). Alle Jahre wieder werden diese Symbole am 30. April aufgestellt. Es muss wohl nicht extra betont werden, dass dabei ordentlich gefeiert wird ...
Maypoles in Mühlhausen, Uhlbach and Wangen (from the left to the right). Every year on the April, 30th these symbols are installed. Needless to say that there is a great party with music, drinking and food ...

Lovely poles, and lovely towns! I wish we celebrated May Day here, also.

Nice to hear from you again. I hope you are well, all settled in your new place and that your life is one of happiness!

Sounds like a lot of fun! In Sweden, they dance around "Maypoles" in June for "Mid-sommar."

I like them - but what is the symbolic value?
