From the Gaelic Council of Nova Scotia: Fuarag (pronouced FOO-uh-rack) is a dish of whipped cream and oatmeal traditionally eaten at Halloween. Fuarag was served in a large communal bowl and in it would be hidden a ring and a coin. Each person would have his or her own spoon and it was believed that whoever got the ring would be the first to marry and the one who got the coin would be rich. Fuarag is still popular in Eastern Nova Scotia at Halloween.
