Armindeni este cunoscută în popor drept ziua pelinului, sau ziua bețivului. Este o sărbătoare populară, cu data fixă 1 mai. Aceasta data este considerata începutul primăverii, iar sărbătoarea se ținea pentru roadele pământului și pentru a evita dezastrele naturale precum grindina sau seceta. Arminden este de fapt o zeitate a vegetației, așadar sărbătoarea are origini păgâne. Se obișnuiește ca în aceasta zi sa se pună câte un pom sau câte o crenguță verde la poartă, ușa sau ferestrele caselor. Este supranumită și sărbătoarea lui Ieremia, de la vechiul slav Ieremii nidini (ziua lui Ieremia). 

Maypole maypole is a tall wooden pole erected as a part of various European folk festivals, particularly on May Day, or Pentecost (Whitsun) although in some countries it is instead erected at Midsummer. In some cases the maypole is a permanent feature that is only utilised during the festival, although in other cases it is erected specifically for the purpose before being taken down again.
