On Wist Night, many bonfires are stacked up during the day, and burned late into the night. Festival goers will place messages to the spirit world on the fires, as well as trinkets with sentimental value, which they wish to let go of, so they can move on. Marshmallows, the primary crop of Nidsk, which grow inside leafy pods, are cooked on the fires and eaten.
Wist Night is celebrated in many Asoumiranz countries. Different regions have slightly different traditions. In Trod and Bazakun, where firewood is sparse, piles of salt are used to make saltfires instead.
