Samhain magical apples

Samhain is an important time for divination. Apples and nuts are used as they have just been harvested and candles are also used for atmosphere. In Scotland it is believed that a child born on Samhain will be gifted with “second sight”. In the Celtic underworld grows an apple tree which has magical properties. Heroes have been known to search for this magical place, in Ireland it is known as Emhain Abhlach and in Britain, Avalon. Apple bobbing or apple-dookin as it is known in Scotland is supposed to be symbolic of these quests for magical apples.
