Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of four young women gathered round the fire on All Hallows Eve (October 31) roasting nuts to foretell the future of their love lives. If the nut on the hearth cracks or jumps, the lover will be unfaithful; if it blazes or burns, his love is true; if two nuts burn together, the pair will marry.
