Wallflowers, wallflowers growing up so high,
All young maidens surely have to die;
Excepting [the name of one of the children], she/he’s the best of all.
She/he can dance and she/he can skip,
And she/he can jump the candlestick.
Turn, turn, turn your face to the wall again.
The child mentioned had to turn to face out from the ring. Once they had all turned round they each tried to jump over the lit candlestick, which could be 65 cm high plus the height of the flame. Another game was apple bobbing using the crossed blades from the bobbin winder hung from the ceiling, with pieces of apple and candle attached to it. Each person in turn was then blindfolded and attempted to eat a piece of apple rather than amusing their friends by eating a piece of candle. In some areas the end of the holiday was marked by ringing of the church bells at midnight when all the games stopped and tea and cakes were eaten.
