« The 31st October is all Hallow E'en, or the vigil of All Saint's day, in which young people try their fortune, by drawing cabbages from the ground, blindfolded. Or, burning nuts in the fire, etc.
The cabbage, or kale, being large or small, straight or crooked, is deemed prophetic of the size and form of the grand object of their spells. If any earth adhere to the root, that is tocher, or fortune; the taste of the heart of the stem, is indicative of the natural temper and disposition. Lastly, the stems are placed over the door, and the christian name of the person who first enters through the door, will be the name sought for. If more than one be so affixed, it will be decided according to the priority of placing the runts or stalks.
The nuts are named, and accordingly as they burn quietly together, or start from beside each other, the course, and issue of their love will be."
These glowing nuts are emblems true
the happy, happy pair,
