Dooking for apples banned as unhygienic - News: "Dooking for apples banned as unhygienic

FOR centuries it has been at the core of all good Halloween parties.
But dooking for apples has been watered down after claims it is unhygienic.

Pupils at schools across Scotland celebrated Halloween with parties last week, but many did so without getting so much as their fringes wet.

Many primary heads have now banned the ancient game – consigning it to the same 'nanny state' bin as conkers, ice-sliding and photographs at nativity plays. Instead, an increasing number of children are told to prong apples with forks."
