On November Eve the lads and lassies sat around the fire together, playing nuts and snap apple. On that night everyone lit a candle for the poor souls. We had great sport playing snap apple. We got a tub of water and put two apples into it, and we were trying to take a bite off the apples. There we got beans and put some into the fire to roast and when we had the beans eaten we began playing cards with some of our friends. Next we got a bowl of water, a piece of clay and a thimble. The person who is going to put his hand in any of these things must be blindfolded. If he puts his hand into the water he is going to cross the sea, if he puts his handed in the clay he is going to die, and if he puts his hand in the thimble he will be a tailor.
