OVER THE CIDER MUGS.

Category: GAMES FOR SPECIAL DAYS.





By each place at the table place a mug of sweet cider, a small bunch
of matches, two candles, and a slip of paper with a pencil.

Before the refreshments are served, when all are seated, the hostess
announces that as she counts twenty-five slowly, each guest is to
write a wish on the paper, light a candle, burn the paper in the
light, letting the ashes fall into the cider, and drink the contents
of the mug, ashes and all. All who succeed in doing this before
twenty-five is counted, will have their wishes granted.

Later, ask each guest to light both candles, naming each after a
sweetheart, and allow them to burn as long as they will. The candle
which burns longest shows which one will prove most faithful.
