'Apple Bobbing' (Word of the Day)

Photo by bgwilson89

'Apple bobbing
, also known as bobbing for apples, is a game customarily played on Halloween. The game is played by filling a tub or a large basin with water and putting apples in the water. Because apples are less dense than water, they will float at the surface. Players (usually children) then try to catch one with their teeth. Use of hands is not allowed, and often are tied behind the back to prevent cheating.' (Source:

(This isn't really a Word of the Day like usually, but I couldn't think of an interesting Halloween themed word? Apple Bobbing was the best I came up with.)
