1. Johnny Appleseed
Stick a bunch of appleseeds to your forehead and name each one for a person you like. The last one that falls off is destined to be your partner.
2. Broom Avoidance
If you’re single, don’t let your feet get caught under a broom. Legend says that if someone sweeps over your feet while sweeping the floor, you’ll be single for the rest of your life.
3. Veiled Unhappiness

5. Cuts Like A Knife

6. Apple Stem Twisting

7. Cabbage Patch Men
This one is for the ladies who grow their own produce. Go out to your cabbage patch blindfolded and pull up a cabbage. If the root is straight, you’ll marry a good looking guy. On the other hand, a crooked roots means your man won’t be “all that and a bag of chips.” Hope that the root is covered in dirt because that means he’ll be filthy rich!
8. Unfamiliar Feline
