    Maypole Dance (1948) My mother had a birthday party for me on May 1st. Ribbon streamers hanging from top of pole, grabbed onto by kids that 'danced around the pole,singing children's songs. ..... May ist is considered 'May Day' and celebrated with home made paper baskets, filled with flowers and candies .. given to favorite friends and relatives.........

    When most homes had living rooms that were similar to this.
