... my favorite game with my grandfather to find the spoon, the fork and knife in the seeds of the persimmon.
Foretell the severity of the winter with a persimmon seed.
As the theory goes, you can tell how severe the upcoming winter will be by cutting open seed of the persimmon in half and looking at what is inside.
If you find a:
• Spoon - This means you better get something to scoop with. There will be a lot of snow to shovel.
• Knife - Bundle up! It is going to be so cold that it will cut through you like a knife.
• Fork - Relax, its going to be a mild winter and there won't be much snow.
