|Tanz in den Mai - work in progress|
The 1st of May is celebrated in Germany welcoming spring. The whole idea is to raise a may pole (a large tree trunk of a pine or birch without the branches) on this day. On top of it there is a small pine tree decorated with ribbons, figurines, or other decorative things that are specific to the town.
Instead of eating and drinking I had some painting fun yesterday ... in fact the day and half of the night ☺. I was painting on three paintings and this is one of them to be finished these days.
But the May tree stands also for LOVE! The story goes that if a young man likes a young woman he will decorate a tree with colored ribbons and put it on the top of her roof in the middle of the night before May 1st as a surprise.
The dude then leaves it up for one month and when he returns to take it down, if the girl likes him back, she will invite him to dinner and if he is lucky a Kiss ♥
And then ..... he will give her of course a RING ♥
to celebrate their love (well, to be honest, this last part is my addition hehehee ☺)
