Meiavondviering (May evening) takes place every year at the end of April in Hasselt, Belgium. Hasselt has been following this tradition from mid-16th century. A large doll, made from birch tree is burnt. This doll represents winter, which means metaphorically ‘burning the winter and welcoming spring’.
