Csoda szarvas - A central figure in the legends surrounding the origin of the Hungarian people. The name translates to "Miraculous Deer".

The Maypole and the Maypole dance go far back into Germanic pagan history. Both were part of the celebration of the Celtic god Beltane at the beginning of Celtic summer, which lasted until Samhain, November 1. The dance, the pole, and the virgin selected as May Queen to walk in front of the May Day procession—all originated in pagan fertility rites that may go back to the ancient Babylonians.
