HALLOWEEN'S APPLES
 


Halloween AppleSymbolic Roots
Apples appear in Greek, Roman, Norse, and Celtic religion and mythology. They have given their name to the Celtic paradise of Avalon and figure prominently in the biblical account of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. They were often placed in the hands of a child who died as a symbol of innocence, and if left past harvest on a tree might signify a death. Their long symbolic association with love has been carried on through the centuries by many folk traditions that use apples to foretell one's future partner in love.
