Meierblis in Texel, Netherlands

This is a popuplar festival in the island of Texel, Netherlands. It literally means May Fires. On April 30 all over the island people gather up and make fires of wood. It is an old ritual that dates before Christianity to drive the spirits from the winter time away. Thanks to Lissy.
