Happy Nutcrack Night!



Original article here.

Who knew that Halloween used to be a time of divination for romance?

LOVE TESTS OF HALLOWEEN tells of other forgotten customs.

Whether you are roasting your lover's nuts, or going door-to-door for candy, have a swell night!

"Be vewy vewy quiet. We're huntin' ghosts". All ready for the night once Patty and subby get here today. Got the K2 meter, Digital voice recorder, IR Digital Camcorder, Full spectrum camera, Spirit Box, Mel meter, Ouija board, etc etc.

As far as the nut thing I believe she still prefers the chocolate whipped cream. I know where any leftover chocolate Halloween candy is going.... Patty and my Mrs. will devour it.

Glad to be visiting but I have some trepidation about all the ghostie stuff. We shall see I guess.

"... put three nuts upon the bars of the grate, naming the nuts after the lovers." So -- the nuts are named for the girl, her lover, and ???
Were threesomes common?
Was this for girls who wanted to choose between lovers?
They wanted to do 2 out of 3?

And what if the nut named after the girl cracks or jumps? Does that mean she's going to fool around?
