. The ritual seems only performed once a year, when solstice, which coincides with Christmas.

Recent History[]

When Madge and Edward found Sam and Dean snooping around in their blood-splattered basement, they took the brothers prisoners and started their ritual preparation for sacrifice. The ritual needed an altar which consisted of some candles, plates, sharp objects to obtain the victim's blood, and may other unidentified objects. During the ritual, Edward pulled out one of Sam's fingernails and was about to pull one of Dean's teeth.

However the ritual was not completed because they were distracted by the doorbell, and the brothers were able to escape their bonds. Dean stabbed Edward with a branch from a Christmas tree while Sam stabbed Madge with another branch, killing them.
