Germans celebrate Labor Day with traditions

FLIESSEM, Germany --- Local fire fighters set up a May tree in the community of Fliessem, near Bitburg, a day prior to German Labor Day, which is May 1. The youngsters will guard it around the clock to make sure neighbouring villagers don’t steal it. Traditionally, the May tree is a symbol of freedom. (Photo by Iris Reiff)
