GAMES AND OTHER ACTIVITIES

in this halloween geeting card from 1904,divination is depicted:the young woman looking a mirror in a darkened room hopes to catch a glimpse of the face of her future husband.
Thereare several games traditionally associated with halloween parties.The most common is dunking or apple bobbing,in which apples float in a tub or a large basin of water;the participants must use their teeth to remove an apples float in a tub or a large basin.A variant of dunking involves kneeling on a chair,holding a fork between the teeth and trying to drop the fork into an apple.Another common game involves hanging up treacle or syrup-coated scones by strings;these must be eaten without using hands while they remain attached to the string,an activity which inevitably leads to a very sticky face.
Some games traditionally played at halloween are forms of divination.In puicíni(pronounced poocheeny),a game played in Ireland,a blindfolded person is seated in front of a table on which several saucers are placed.The saucers are shuffed and the seated person then chooses one by touch.
The contents of the saucer determine the person´s life during the following year.A saucer containing earth means someone known to the player will die during the next year,a sucer containing water foretells emigration,a ring foretells marriage,a set of Rosary beads indicates that the person will take Holy Orders(becoming a nun or a priest).A coin means new wealth, a bean means poverty,and so on.In 19th century Ireland, young women placed slugs in saucers sprinkled with flour.A traditional Irish and Scottish form of divining one´s future spouse is to carve an apple in one long strip,then toss the peel over one´s shoulder.The peel is believer to land in the shape of the first letter of the future spouse´s name.This custom has survived among Irish Scottish immigrants in the rural United States.
Unmarried women were frequently told that if they sat in a darkened room and gazed into a mirror on halloween night,the face of their future husband would appear in the mirror.However,if they were destined to die before marriage,a skull would appear.athe custom was widespred enough to be commemorated on greeting cads from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.aaathe mirror gaze was one of many forms of love divination around Halloween and other ancient holy days.
The telling of ghost stories and viewing of horror fims are common fixtures of halloween parties.Episodes of tv series and specials with halloween theme (with the specials usually aimed at children)are commonly aired on or before the holiday while new horror fims,like the popular saw films,are often released theatrically before the holiday to take advantage of the atmospheere.
