When we think about cards we usually think about play cards, and sometimes about a hazard. But that's not all. There are people in the world who want to know their future. Will they get married or  they will die young? No one knows that… But that's wrong. I think you saw many TV shows where people call fortuneteller. Maybe you think that is stupid, but who knows?

Fortune-tellers Fortune-tellers are people who use cards or crystal balls to see the future. Many people go to the fortune-teller in order to know something about their future. Such visit is very expensive, but people think it will help them become more confident about themselves and their family. But sometimes they feel anxiety and fear, because not every prediction is positive.

Ways oF prediCting the Future:

All of these ways could make you know something about the future. Now, I can’t trust that every prediction method is reliable, so if your prediction is negative don’t worry. It was created to give you some entertainment so it’s simply fun.

These ways of predicting can be used on the St Andrew's Eve party. That will be never-to-beforgotten time spent with your friends!
