Legend card:  "The Walnut... In Europe, walnuts were used as part of Christmas Eve games and feasts.  One game the children especially enjoyed playing called for cracking the shell of a walnut, putting a small candle in it, and floating it in a pan of water.  A boy held his breath as the candle melted down because if the candle burned down to the bottom before turning over, it meant the boy would live a long life.  A girl would carefully watch the lit candle in the walnut shell, hoping hers would stand the longest, which meant she would marry a good husband."  - Inge-Glas
