Have you ever seen a May Pole? What is it?
What are May Poles? Have you ever seen one? They are used on May Day.
We had them in Catholic school. It's a pole with several ropes hanging from it. Kinda like tether ball, but with more ropes and no ball on the end. On May Day we'd wrap the ropes in crepe paper. Each child grabs a rope and basically skips around the pole in a circle.
Here's a link with various photos of May poles:

I've never seen an authentic one. The custom originated in Europe and somehow didn't make its way to the American South. At one time it was part of the pagan spring equinox ceremony but evolved into a Christian custom, mainly in Northern Europe.
The maypole and its various celebratory dances have a long history, religious and secular. They were also put into celebrations of Communism in 1917. read more
