Jeff R.: Cultural Anthropology 101

"So you all tie ribbons to this pole, and then dance in circles around it?"

"That's right. But don't leave out the Morris Dancing, or the crowning of the May Queen. Plus there's the bonfire. Not a proper Walpurgis without a nice, big bonfire."

"And this is a fertility ritual...?"

"Oh, yes. Yes indeed. The town's always littered with the babbies three seasons on, if it's done right."

"And this is because of the symbolic unification of the God and the Goddess during the dancing."

"Sure, sure. Well, that and that we all go home and shag like minks afterward."
