There are many traditional Halloween games. One popular game is dunking, or apple bobbing, in which apples float in a bath or large pot of water and participants have to use their teeth to pick up an apple. A variation of dunking involves kneeling on a chair, holding a fork (fork) between teeth and trying to drop them into an apple. A popular game that involves hanging a baguette coated with molasses or a bag of syrup on a tree with strings and a player having to eat without using their hands, and this will definitely get game participants to have a face filled with syrup.
Some traditional games played at Halloween are form of divination. A traditional form in Scotland is fortune telling for one’s future spouse: first peel an apple into a long strip, then toss the peel over the shoulder. When the apple peel falls to the ground it will take the shape of the first letter of the prospective spouse’s name. Unmarried women have said that if they sit in a dark room and look in the mirror on Halloween night, their future husband’s face will appear in the mirror. However, if they die before they get married, a skull will appear. That pattern appears on greeting cards from the late 19th and early 20th centuries
