Myth of Peeling Apple

Apple-picking season just started in upstate NY. So, I thought that it would be a great time to share with you an interesting Chinese myth.

In Hong Kong, a lot of people, especially women, can peel apples by a pairing knife as quick and good as the apple peelers. This myth has been spreading around since I was in my early teen.

Someone said that if you face a mirror and peel the apple without breaking the peel into 2 pieces at midnight sharp, you will see your future husband on the mirror. Very scary, huh?

When I was at school, one of my classmates tried it. But she didn’t succeed.

And it was said that if the peel breaks, your future husband will be hurt.

It’s just something to share with you for fun. :-)
