Bobbing For Apples
Apple harvest coincides with Samhain, the Celtic New Year, and is celebrated on October 31st. On Samhain, the veil between our world and the world of magic is thinner than at any other time of the year. The story goes that people wishing to cross over to the other side had to survive an ordeal by water and capture an apple. So be careful when dunking your head in a tub filled with fruit and spit — you may end up in the land of the fairies. Also, if you peel an apple in one long strip and then toss it over your shoulder, the letter it forms will be the initial of your future lover.
