We have many Czech happenings in the area we live and participate in many of them. The kids are part of a Czech Folk Group, the of 5 of us belong to a Czech Club and have made many friends through these activities. We also eat many traditional Czech dishes but I will save that for another day. Yes, we are darn proud of our heritage BUT that doesn't mean I don't poke fun at it whenever I get the chance! This here is one of those chances. I just can't stop myself...I just can't.
We recently attended a Czech Festival and one of the activities was a Maypole. Participants in the days activities as well as the audience were invited to participate in the wrapping.
The top of the pole just kept spinning and spinning...it seemed like it went on forever. I really did feel bad.When the decision was made to start weaving instead of wrapping, the pole finally stopped spinning and started to look like a real Maypole. It was very beautiful and very fun!
