        This looks like more fun than head banging in a mosque or bruising up your knees in a church

            Yeah...maybe. I'm not one for dancing around totem poles or kneeling in prayer.

            Maybe I'd like to bang on a few heads in a mosque ...that could be fun.

              unlikely (needed to look it up)

              you don't need to dance around the Maibaum. Jump (naked) over the fire, when you are brave enough .


              I'm not sure if there is a difference to Beltane?

                Ah... I see!!! But I guess that there's a supernatural force protecting your dangling bits from getting burnt off, it's a religious ceremony after all

                  sure there is - just try. I recommend a proper whole-body shaving though....in case your faith into that supernatural protection force is a bit weak

                    Why is it called a tourist season if we're not supposed to hunt them?

                      That still leaves other bits and pieces dangling... unless you cut them off, they are still going to get burnt off :P

                      Will the supernatural protection force give us new ones if they get burnt off?

                        Interestingly, that this old tradition is today /from all whole of Central Europe/ has preserved only in Germany (mostly only in Saxony) and in the Czechia (one of the most atheists in the world).

                          It appears that Aussieinbg and Suna123 are smoking some really powerful weed...

                            The advantage of Walpurgis and on the matter over mistletoe is that it is WARM..
                            Isn't jumping the flames more Canaanite than Christian ?

                              MISTAKE ! my fault ... KISSING is closely related both with mistletoe And Walpurgis , under the flowering cherry tree..
                              Cold and romance out in the weather just don't go together like Warm and romance...
