Allhallows-Eve




St Ives celebrates the ancient custom of providing children with a large apple on this eve of "Allan-day" as it is called, to this day. It is a great misfortune to the children to go to bed on "Allan-night" without the ancient custom of hiding a Allan apple beneath their pillows. Great amounts of apples were sold for this holiday’s custom in the markets, thus the term Allan Market begin.
