Here are some unusual fortune telling games for Halloween Night, or the Eve of Halloween.
Cut a small lock of hair. (Aren't these great vintage witch scissors?)
Just a teeny bit...or use hair from your brush.
Toss the lock of hair into a Halloween bonfire, and that night you'll dream of your true love. Living in Texas, we didn't have a lot of bonfires at this time of year because it's still hot as blazes. I am envious of all you northern types that make autumn bonfires....how festive!
When the sun sets, young girls would go off into the fields and dig up the first cabbage they came across. It has to be the first one!
If the roots of the cabbage still had lots of earth on them, the girl would someday marry a wealthy man. If the roots were clean, her future love would be poor.
Eating the cabbage Halloween night would give the girl a clue about the temperament of her future spouse.....bitter or sweet. The cabbage was usually cooked.
