The worship of Baal and Asherah involved rituals and sacrifices, which were part of the religious practices of the Canaanites. Gideon's father's choice of worshipping these gods reflects the prevalent polytheistic beliefs and practices of the society in which he lived.

By doing it at night, he could maintain a level of anonymity and avoid any potential negative consequences.
