The midsummer pole is made of wood.

Description

In Sweden a midsummer pole is raised in an open spot and traditional ring-dances ensue, to the delight of the children and some of the adults. The ring dances are mostly in the form of dances where participants alternate dancing and making movements and gestures based on the songs, such as pretending to scrub laundry while singing about washing, or jumping as frogs during the song Små grodorna (“The little frogs”).
