In Latgale the wreath of Jumītis, the Grain God, with two spikes grown together was brought home. This wreath providing blessing was usually put in a room above the bread table because then there would always be enough bread at home.
A sign of blessing is usually marked on loafs in Latgale and usually this is a cross.
Cut smoked meat with onions is wrapped in rye bread dough. In Latgale guests were met by offering this loaf or it was brought when going to visit others.
The big Jumis loaf is placed on a table at a celebration - this loaf is decorated with Jumis' sign and a spike formed on the loaf and made of wheat flour dough. The landlord gets the first slice of bread from the big loaf and then others get theirs.
