Midsummer’s Eve was a day of preparation. Flower wreaths were made, cakes baked, and a festive shrine arranjed in the dinning room. Once it was ready, shortly before sunset, Lord Ingui’s image was moved from its usual altar to a special and temporary one on the dinning table. After dark, two candles lighted the statue during the short night.
There was no particular ceremony during the transfer of the statue, other than slowly walking with Freyr’s face turned forward. Sunset was marked by the blowing of a horn nine times and a sunwheel with ribbons and wheat hanged on the front door.
