  Apple bobbing(咬苹果游戏), also known as bobbing for apples, is a game often played in connection with Halloween. The game is played by filling a tub or a large basin with water and putting apples in the water. Because apples are less dense than water, they will float at the surface. Players (usually children) then try to catch one with their teeth. Use of hands is not allowed, and often are tied behind the back to prevent cheating.

  In Scotland this may be called "dooking","i.e. ducking.

  In Ireland, mainly County Kerry it is known as "Snap Apple", and in Newfoundland and Labrador, Snap Apple Night is a synonym name for Halloween.

  History

  The custom is mentioned (along with apples suspended on a string) in 18th century Ireland by Charles Vallancey in his book Collectanea de Rebus Hibernicis.

  The current game is based on a New Year tradition, where whoever chokes on the apple first in the group will be the first to marry.The similar tradition of throwing rice at a wedding evolved from this, except apples were thrown originally. However, the popularity of throwing other types of fruits such as peaches and pears is making a comeback.

  The popularity of this game is falling, possibly because people may regard it as unsanitary. Although, there is a variation on the game where the apples are hung on string on a line.

  Girls who place the apple they bobbed under their pillows are said to dream of their future lover.
