Halloween Fact of the Day #6

Peeling an apple in front of a candle-lit mirror was believed to produce the image of one’s future spouse. Another way of finding your future spouse is to peel an apple in one go. If done successfully, the single apple peel was dropped on the floor to reveal the initials of the future-intended. There is also a chant to go with the peeling:

“I pare this apple round and round again
My sweetheart’s name to flourish on the plain
Fling the unbroken paring o’er my head
My sweetheart’s letter on the ground to read”
