A Halloween postcard showing children bobbing for apples, 1908. From the Mrs. Sam Ray Postcard Collection.
These mischievous-looking creatures appear to be cutting a cake or possibly barmbrack, an Irish sweet bread traditionally served on Halloween.
This lively group appears to be playing a Victorian parlour game called “Three Luggies” or Three Bowls. One bowl is filled with milk, one with water, and the third is empty. If the blindfolded woman dips her finger in the water, she will marry a bachelor; if the milk, then a widower. If she chooses the empty bowl, she will remain single the rest of her days.
