Upon arrival, the guests were greeting by the priest and his entourage. The guests handed over the requested two bottles of peppermint schnapps, which were given to the priest. He then poured them out a bit at a time while reciting a welcoming message and blessing for the day. The man in the foreground holds a staff with a carved figure; he and the gentleman opposite him clapped and responded to the priest's chants.
