Hallows Everyday 29


Apple Divination

Cut an apple in half, count the number of seeds
and match that number to these fortunes:

One, a letter shall appear,
Two, your'll meet a friend who's dear;
Three, you're going to be miffed,
Four, you'll soon receive a gift.
Five, you'll have a glad surprise,
Six, something lost will meet your eyes;
Seven brings you a holiday,
Eight brings company from away;
Nine, you take a trip somewhere,
Ten, you'll have a love affair.
Eleven, you will quarrel and part,
Twelve, you'll for the altar start.
Thirteen brings you joy and health,
Fourteen brings a bag of wealth.

Spooky Hallowe'en Entertainments, 1923

Blessings nine!
