    Thumbs Up The Maypole – More Than a Symbol of Prosperity

    by Sabine Barnhart


    Many, many years ago when I was a seven-year old German girl, with pig-tails dressed in a homemade dirndl (traditional dress), I enjoyed going to the spring festivals in May. Taking a break from running around and gliding down make-shift slides made out of folding tables, I would retreat to a shady spot with my bratwurst and my lemonade to admire the Maypole in our town.

    A Maypole is the pride of every town and village in Bavaria and is erected on April 30th. Its tradition dates back to the 16th or 17th century and became quite popular again in the 18th century. It symbolizes the independence, wealth, and strength of a town. It has always been the job of the men of the town to find, protect, erect, and decorate the Maypole.

    The original meaning of the Maypole dates back to the spring fertility festivals of India and Egypt. The Maypole was decorated with flowers and streamers. The streamers were held by dancers who circled the pole, weaving a pattern as they passed each other during the dance. The pole represents the masculine principle of nature whereas the wreath represents the feminine principle.

    Bavarian Maypoles can range from 20 to 30 meters high. The taller the better. The pole must be straight and, in most southern regions, is peeled of its bark. In some towns it will be painted with the Bavarian colors of blue and white. The top of the tree still has the crown that, according to ancient Germanic thinking, kept the strength in the tree (fertility strength).

    The poles can also be decorated with the crests of the various craftsmen’s guilds in each town. Beautifully carved and painted ornaments can be found below the wreath.

    Since I was a girl, I really did not get to experience the whole Maypole tradition. It has always been a man’s kind of thing. The only times I ended up under the Maypole were with my boyfriends during one of the summer fests. We were dancing! And, once I was kissed under the Maypole. So, I do have some treasured memories.

    It’s the young men of the town that have to watch the tree for several days after it has been cut to keep it from getting stolen by neighboring towns. Each town tries to steal another town’s Maypole. The young men have to sit and guard the pole prior to its festive raising ceremony.

    This April I had one of my weekly telephone calls with my Dad. We talked about the Maypole and he informed me that a 20-meter Maypole was stolen from the highest mountain of Germany (Zugspitze). What? How on earth did they get a tree off a mountain that is 2,962 meters high and covered in snow? Apparently by helicopter. How clever! And expensive. The men have a lot invested in the successful theft of a Maypole.

    If a pole is stolen by men of another town, the boys/men must find it and negotiate with the thieves to have it returned. If a tree is not reclaimed by their owners, it will be erected next to the town’s Maypole with some very hilarious sayings about the town’s unwillingness to get their Maypole back.

    Negotiation must always include beer and food – given as an exchange – to seal the deal brought on by reconciliation. The Zugspitze thieves also received their customary feast. Although their request for season tickets on the train up to the mountain was denied.

    Someone tried to establish a set of "Golden Rules" for stealing and negotiating the return of the pole. Here are some. Poles must be stolen as a covert operation. The cleverer the undertaking, the better. It would be considered a crime to damage the pole in any way. If the thieves are caught hauling off the pole within the town limits, their booty must be returned without a struggle.

    Raised poles can no longer be stolen. Only the tree and not the crests, wreath, or ribbons can be stolen. After reconciliation and exchange, peace must be honored. As strange as it may sound, this code of conduct is honored in most areas with little variations. Men I know in my hometown have grown up with guarding the Maypole. It sounds almost like a fraternity initiation. It is, after all, a testing of their manly courage to defend the honor of their town.

    I remember that once another village sawed off our Maypole during the night. There have been rivalries between clubs, and even amongst the younger men, in the various towns, especially if the men dated girls of our town or vice versa. It was mostly the youth soccer clubs or bachelor clubs that spawned some of the rivalries. No war broke out! It was a crime and may have brought dishonor to their town. The guys made up with each other on their terms – making someone pay with a party somewhere, possibly down by the river with camp fire and tents.

    Agricultural societies, such as the one I grew up in, still maintain some rituals of ancient cultures. They rely on the fertility of their crops and livestock.

    According to our ancestors, a Maypole not only represents fertility but strength. In the 21st century fertility and strength are still a very important trait in a man. Fertility is a sign of prosperity that will strengthen and stabilize family and community life. A modern symbol of prosperity in America is the commercial district of a city erected with skyscrapers that are quite intimidating to a more modest culture.

    Trees symbolized fertility and life in many ancient cultures. Even the Christmas tree is a symbol of pagan Germany worshipping the god Thorburn. It was the Irish missionaries of St. Patrick who incorporated pagan symbols into the Christian faith, making it an acceptable part of Christmas. The Easter egg is another remnant of that time.

    On the wedding day of a young couple, birch trees are placed on either side of the entrance to the bride’s family home and often at the entrance to the church. White streamers are hung on the branches for purity. The tree again symbolizes the good wishes for prosperity (be fruitful and multiply).

    My "girly" understanding of why the Maypole tradition is still so popular in our area lies with man himself. His need to prove his courage and defend his honor is demonstrated by successfully completing a theft of a symbol through his wit, negotiating the price of its release, and restoring peace to the community.

    Young men are given a chance to act out their natural ways of rebellion and competition by learning the skills and abiding in the wisdom of the older men. The man on the watch has to stay alert throughout the night. The man on the negotiating side has to show charisma, a sense of humor, and diplomacy. It is men amongst men.

    A young man’s physical strength is especially needed when raising the tree in a vertical position on April 30th. Young and old, men and women, come out to watch. Beer barrels and sausage stands are ready for the townspeople while the men are raising the Maypole. In most cases, it is manual labor requiring strong wooden levers, skill, and strength.

    After the Maypole has been placed into its proper position, the pre-May Day celebration continues. Benches and tables are set up for the May Day celebration. There will be music and people will be dancing on a wooden dance floor or in a local guesthouse. Even a clergy member may stop by for a beer and some mingling. Spring fever seems to be catching. It is the prelude to summer.

    The first of May is a day for being outside. Many people will ride their bicycles and take long hikes through the fields and forests. Without a doubt, a hiker will run into festive activities in any town in Bavaria.

    A couple of years ago I went home to visit Germany with my three kids. I watched my girls play with the German kids at a local festival. They played the same way I used to, by making slides out of benches and tables and gliding down them over and over again. They ran around next to the Maypole, with their bratwurst and lemonade, enjoying their friends and the freedom of being a kid. My then seventeen-year-old son was given a small mug of beer, foaming at the rim, by his grandfather with a silent understanding that it is acceptable to drink amongst adults. From my standpoint, I saw it as my father looking out for his grandson and allowing him to be a young man. There was nothing shameful about it. He was given permission to drink in the open (although he wasn’t too crazy about the taste).

    The Maypole custom is definitely a guy thing. Men have their laws and rules, and they have their ways of guarding their prosperity. The women stay out of the competition and negotiating. We left it up to our guys to protect our town’s honor. By the time we saw them again at the festival, they had a story to tell us. And the men, of course, were heroic regardless of what happened!

    Not many customs are left these days for young men to go through their natural tendency to rebel with the endorsement of community. Although some religions have a spiritual initiation for young boys to turn into young men, it is not as common as perhaps it once was. When it does happen, they will then obey another set of rules and, we hope, mature. A teenage boy’s need to prove himself in modern society is often left to sports. The emphasis is on competing to win at all cost. Some kids are left to their own devices and can be drawn into gang environments where their rebelliousness is used against community. They lack the guidance of ancient customs that promote the good of the whole. Some kids are blessed to have wise parents who know what to do.

    The old custom of the Maypole still offers that streak of man an opportunity to act out, but with the endorsement of a community that strives for an exchange that encourages more of a Gemütlichkeit atmosphere rather than a criminal one. Wisdom knows to give enough room to the human heart to learn its lessons.

    Biblical truth can mold these lessons into valuable insights that can make a young man into a man of responsibility who is accountable for his actions. The symbol of the Maypole is then elevated to a higher place. The masculine principle of fertility and strength must also contain the humble and meek spirit of the feminine to make these lessons prosper for the good of all.

    Post Re: The Maypole

    Interesting, but the maypole is a fertility symbol once common in many Germanic societies. It was a custom in England for centuries. The maypole has its roots as a pagan phallic fertility symbol, which is why quotes like "Biblical truth can mold these lessons into valuable insights that can make a young man into a man of responsibility who is accountable for his actions"
    perplex me, given that the maypole is inherently unChristian. I get so sick of these paleocons salivating over Judeo-Christianity as the "founding spirit of America" and "what this country should return to."

    "The masculine principle of fertility and strength must also contain the humble and meek spirit of the feminine to make these lessons prosper for the good of all."

    These biblethumpers overreact to feminism in such a way as to actually do further societal damage. Women should not meek and submissive; fertility is as important or more important for females than for men. Childbirth requires a strength which is inconceivable to men, so we should not lecture about the "weak, humble female." I wouldn't want a wife who bows her head and does whatever she is told, speaking only when spoken to!! The correct path lies in the middle between the extremes of Semitic misogyny and radical women's supremacy.

    Lightbulb Walpurgis Night

    Walpurgis, the 30th of April, marks the end of the winter in Sweden and Finland, and is the most important festive celebration of the year alongside of Christmas and Midsummer


    Germany's Walpurgis and the Nordic celebration of Spring

    Each year, in the evening of April the 30th, Swedes and Finns celebrate Saint Walpurgis, one of the most popular festivities during the year alongside of Christmas and Midsummer. Walpurgis Night receives the name of "Valborg" in Sweden and "Vappu" in Finland, and is a very lively celebration where people spend the night together and sing traditional songs to welcome spring.

    The Walpurgis tradition is commonly associated with the feast of Anglo-German Saint Walpurgis. Walpurga was a woman born in England in 710. She went to live to Württemberg in Germany, where she became a nun and abbess in the convent of Heidenheim.

    Walpurgis was made a saint on the 1st of May 779, around the same dates than Scandinavians celebrated the return of Spring and the worshipping rituals of fertility associated with that season. With the conversion of the Swedes into Christianity, and since the time of year was the same, the Pagan and Christian celebrations became mixed together and resulted in the Walpurgis Night celebration.


    Walpurgis in Sweden: Valborg


    Valborg is celebrated in Sweden in different ways, always depending on the part of the country. Lighting large bonfires is a popular celebration in eastern parts of Sweden like in Svealand or Uppland, where people gather material for their bonfires for months ahead. Lighting bonfires is an ancient custom related to keeping away evil spirits, demons and witches.

    Nowadays Valborg is just seen as a celebration of springtime, but for a feel of the good old Viking days the Skansen Open-Air museum still celebrates Stockholm's largest and most historical Valborg celebration.

    For most of the Swedes though, Valborg just means the end of the winter season and there is no better way to celebrate it than singing Spring songs. Spring songs and choral singing are very typical of the Swedish Valborg celebrations, with many of the traditional songs dating from as back as the 19th century. The most popular and traditional spring festivities are held in the old university towns of Uppsala, Lund and Gothenburg, with its famous carnival parade.

    Current and graduated students party all day and all night, and even perhaps longer than that, wearing all the time their characteristic white graduation caps. Valborg is a double national festivity in Sweden because King Carl XVI Gustaf celebrates his birthday on Valborg's day, 30th of April. Swedish flags are raised all around the country to salute him and show him respect.

    May Day (May 1st) follows the Valborg celebrations with a wide choice of events, marches and demonstrations taking place across the country to celebrate the working class' rights. The 1st of May is a public holiday in Sweden, and many Swedes spend the day either attending the celebrations of political parties and trade unions, or simply enjoying a picnic outdoors with friends and family, weather permitting.


    Walpurgis in Finland: Vappu


    Vappu means in Finland an opportunity to match the traditional springtime revelry with the modern street carnival and the Finnish enthusiasm for drinking. Vappu is the holiday when Finns do their utmost to behave contrary to their reserved image, screaming through the streets with masks in their faces and drinks in their hands.

    Like in Sweden, student traditions are one of the main characteristics of Vappu. Current and graduated students party day and night with their characteristic white graduation caps. In Helsinki, one of the main events is the capping of the nude female statue Havis Amanda, the symbol of Finland's capital city.

    Friends and families get together for a picnic, and traditional delicacies and drinks are specially prepared and brewed for the occasion, such as Tippaleipä (sweet May Day biscuit) and Sima (mead).

    The 1st of May is a public holiday in Finland, and political gatherings are organised all around the country to celebrate the rights of the working class. For many Finns, this day is spent outdoors -- Vappu after all marks the end of the winter for the Finns, even if it may be snowing on this very day.


    Recipe for Sima (24 servings)
    Ingredients:

    2 lemons
    10 litres of water
    500 grams brown sugar
    500 grams white sugar
    1/2 tea spoon of dry yeast
    Two dozen raisins

    Instructions:

    1. Thinly shave the yellow peel from the lemons and place them aside.
    2. Cut away the bitter white membranes and discard them. Slice the lemons into very thin pieces.
    3. Place lemon peels, slices and sugars in a sufficiently large container.
    3. Bring the water to the boil and pour it over the lemon peels, slices and the sugars. Stir and leave to stand covered for a while.
    4. Add the yeast when the sugars have dissolved and the liquid is lukewarm. Stir in.
    5. Allow to ferment, uncovered, at room temperature (25 'C) for 12 hours.
    6. To Bottle:
    - Put first 1 teaspoon of white sugar and 2/3 raisins each 1 litre clean bottle.
    - Pour the Sima into the bottles, straining through a sieve to remove the lemon. Seal loosely as it needs room to ferment a bit longer.
    - Let stand for a 2-5 of days. The Sima will be ready to drink when the raisins rise to the surface.

    Serve it well chilled. You can also add hops for flavour, and use honey instead of sugar.


    Recipe for Tippaleivät (May Day biscuits)
    Ingredients:

    2 eggs
    2 teaspoons sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon vanillin
    2 dl milk
    4 dl flour

    Instructions:

    1. Mix the eggs and sugar, but don't beat them.
    2. Add the other ingredients and stir into a smooth batter.
    3. Put the batter into a paper cone or a pastry bag fitted with a small-holed nozzle.
    4. Squeeze the batter in a thin band into the hot vegetable oil. Use a spiral motion to form nest-like biscuits. Ideally, you would use a metal ring in the pot to keep the biscuits in shape.
    5. Remove and drain the golden brown biscuits on paper towels.
    7. Dust the cold biscuits with powdered sugar.

    Maypole dancing



    Maypole dancing is a form of folk dance from western Europe, especially England, Sweden and Germany, with two distinctive traditions. In the most widespread, dancers perform circle dances around a tall pole which is decorated with garlands, painted stripes, flowers, flags and other emblems. In the second, dancers dance in a circle each holding a coloured ribbon attached to a much smaller pole; the ribbons are intertwined and plaited either on to the pole itself or into a web around the pole. The dancers may then retrace their steps exactly in order to unravel the ribbons.
    The first kind of maypole dancing is probably extremely ancient and is thought by some to have Germanic pagan fertility symbolism, although there is a lack of evidence to support this conjecture. It is traditionally performed in the spring around the festival of May Day, but in Sweden it is during the midsummer festivities.
    The second kind of maypole dancing originates in the 18th century, derived from traditional and 'art' dance forms popular in Italy and France. These were exported to the London stage and reached a large audience, becoming part of the popular performance repertoire. Adopted at a large teacher training institution, the ribbon maypole dance then spread across most of central and southern England and is now regarded as the most 'traditional' of May Day's traditional characteristics.
    According to the book, The Two Babylons, the origin of the maypole dance began in ancient Bablyon during sex worship and fertility rites. A carved upright representation of the human penis was danced around by young females and woven with ribbons to insure offspring. There is a lack of evidence to support this view, however.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maypole_dance

    History of Maypole Dancing: Origins



    Some sort of pole representing the "Axis Mundi" (centre of the world) is common in many societies throughout the world. The Vikings and Saxons had a myth about a World TreeYggdrasil (illustrated above). In 772 Emperor Charlemagne ordered the pulling down of a great "Irminsul" which people were accused of worshipping in Marsburg (North Germany). It is difficult, however, to trace such ancient rites directly to our own customs. Similar concepts may, in any case, have arisen, independently of each other, at different times and in different places. See also Axis Mudi on wikipedia.



    Perhaps the pole served simply as the centre of attention at fairs and other gatherings. A tall pole could be seen from far away and would advertise the event. Prizes were sometimes hung from the top for people to attempt to climb up to and reach. The pole acted as a focus for people to meet at and dance around. The maypole probably became iconic of fairs and merry making in the way that the "Helter Skelter" and "Big Wheel" did for fairs in the recent past. Before the age of steam powered rides the urge to spin round and round may have been satisfied by dancing round the maypole to music provided by travelling minstrels. The picture above shows a German fair of the 16th century with various games and dancing going on. In the background some sort of sword fight is taking place. This may have developed into sword dances (and perhaps morris dances). Dances holding linked swords and weaving sword "locks" are sometimes associated with ribbon plaiting dances in the Basque region and French Alps.

    Old Church Warden's accounts occasionally refer to money being spent on maypoles for use in Whitsun ales etc. before (and sometimes after) the Reformation. The pole would often be put to good use afterwards to make ladders or as timbers for new buildings.
    A charter at the time of King John granting land to Cokesland Abbey mentions Lostock maypole (about 3 miles west of Bolton, Lancashire). This may, however, be a misinterpretation of the old name for the Maple or Sycamore Tree. The earliest written record of a maypole is usually now regarded as that of the Welsh poet Dafydd in the 14th century, see below.

    To a Birch-tree Cut Down, and Set Up in Llanidloes for a Maypole

    Gruffydd ab Addaf ap Dafydd, c. 1340-1370

    Long are you exiled from the wooden slope, birch-tree, with your green hair in wretched state; you who were the majestic sceptre of the wood where you were reared, a green veil. Are now turned traitress to the grove. Your precinct was lodging for me and my love-messenger in the short nights of May. Manifold once (ah, odious plight!) were the carollings in your pure green crest, and in your bright green house I heard every bird-song make its way; under your spreading boughs grew herbs of every kind among the hazel saplings, when your dwelling-place in the wood was pleasing to my girl last year. But now you think no more of love, your crest above remains dumb; and from the green meadow and the upland, where your high rank was plain to see, you have gone bodily and in spite of the cost to the town where trade is brisk. Though the gift of an honourable place in thronged Llandidloes where many meet is good, not good, my birch, do I think your rape nor your site nor your habitation. No good place is it for you for putting out green leaves, there where you make grimaces. Every town has gardens with leafage green enough; and was it not barbarous, my birch, to make you wither yonder, a bare pole by the pillory? If you had not, at the time of leaves, to stand in the centre of the dry crossroads, though they say your place is a pleasant one, my tree, the skies of the glen would have been the better. No more will the birds sleep, no more will they sing in their shrill note on your fair gentle crest, sister of the dusky wood, so incessant will be the hubbub of the people around your tent – a cruel maiming! And the green grass will not grow beneath you, for the trampling of the townsmen’s feet, any more than it grew on the wind-swift path of Adam and the first woman long ago. You were made, it seems, for huckstering, as you stand there like a market-woman; and in the cheerful babble at the fair all will point their fingers at your suffering, in your one grey shirt and your old fur, amid the petty merchandise. No more will the bracken hide your urgent seedlings, where your sister stays; no more will there be mysteries and secrets shared, and shade, under your dear eaves; you will not conceal the April primroses, with their gaze directed upwards; you will not think now to inquire, fair poet tree, after the birds of the glen, God! Woe to us a cramped chill is on the land, a subtle dread, since this helplessness has come on you, who bore your head and your fine crest like noble Tegwedd of old. Choose from the two, since it is foolish for you to be a townsman captive tree: either to go home to the lovely mountain pasture, or to wither yonder in the town.

    Walpurgis and 1. of May 2010

    Have you planned something special for the night of Walpurgis and the following 1. of may (or May-Day) this year?

    Many adherents of heathen faith meet up at places like the Externsteine here in Germany. Most of them are one-world one-love new age weirdos with no real understanding of what they deal with.
    But this is a generalisation and of course there are exceptions.

    Are there comparable cult-places that are nowadays visited by heathen folks in your area or country?
