The girl would then use the same apple to predict who their fiancé would be. Accordingly, she will peel the apple into long strips and then throw the apple peel over her shoulder at midnight Halloween.

The mysterious Jack O’Lanterns is known for a dark and rather mysterious origin. An ancient Irish legend mentions a man named Stingy Jack. Once, Jack tricked satan into drinking with him. After drinking, Jack was forced to pay, but he did not want to pay. Therefore, Jack convinces satan to turn himself into a coin to pay for alcohol. Jack thinks that if he did, he wouldn’t really have to spend his own money. Unfortunately for the satan, Jack soon sneaked a Cross in his pocket. As the satan cast the magic of turning into coin, he took it into his pocket and the Cross negated the satan’s demonic powers so he could no longer transform again.
