    Maibaum?
    Why? I understand a little. Probably, your explanations are required. Oh, I torment you questions!

      Dear Olga, I am glad about your interest!
      A (Maibaum) maypole is a tall wooden pole erected as a part of various European folk festivals, particularly on May Day. Although in some countries it is instead erected at Midsummer. In some cases, like here in Bevern, the maypole is a permanent feature that is only utilised during the festival. Although in other cases it is erected specifically for the purpose before being taken down again.
      Maypole dancing is a form of traditional folk dance from western Europe, especially England, Sweden, Galicia, Portugal and Germany :-))
