- Hallowe’en is on the first day of November. The old people used to make a great feast of that day. The people of a village used to gather into one house on the last night of October.
The old people used to call the last night of October “November eve.” They used to call the first day of November “November day.” Many games used to be played on “November Eve.”
The old people used always have “cally” on that night. They would not think it would be November night unless they would have “cally.” Very few people have “cally” now for that night, but it is kept up in some houses yet.
They used to have a cake with a ring in it. The first person that would get the ring would be the first person to get married. It was a great custom with the old people to get a bath of water and to put an apple in it. The young people used to go ducking. The person that would get the apple would be the best ducker.(leanann ar an chéad leathanach eile)Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
