Snapdragon is an Old Fashioned parlor game to be enjoyed during Halloween

Snapdragon is a favorite game with the younger folks and the elders will enjoy it as well. Around a half pint of brandy should be poured into a dish, and then a lighted match should be applied to it. The moment the brandy catches fire, the light in the room should be turned off so that the sole illumination comes from the blazing brandy.

A handful of raisins, candied fruits and sugared almonds will then be tossed in, and the guests must try and snatch them out of the flames. The game will cause great excitement and laughter. The young lady or man who manages to obtain the highest number of fruit and nuts from the flames will find their future mate within a year.
