Hallows Everyday 28

Candle Divination for Halloween

To learn what sort of man your husband will be, collect
some candles, one of each color: red, yellow, pink, white, green, 
and blue. Place them together on a table top and light them. 
Stand some ways from the lit candles and blow three times toward 
them. Whichever colors are extinguished, will show you the qualities 
of the man you will choose for your husband 

Candle of red denotes that you
Will win a spouse constant and true;
White denotes whate'er his station
Your mate will have a fine reputation;
'Tis foretold by candle of yellow
He'll be a very industrious fellow;
By candle pink you are told
That he'll be handsome to behold;
And always, so candle of green doth tell,
He will provide for you amply and well;
While blue proclaims with sure discerning,
That he will be a man of learning.

Halloween Hilarity, 1924

Blessings nine!
