What is it about apples & teachers?

The theme for the Gallery over at Sticky Fingers is  appropriately ‘Back to School’ as most schools in England start back from their long summer holidays.

I got my knuckles severely ( and rightly) slapped when I said that UK schools go back as our colleagues in Scotland have been hard at it for a couple of weeks!

Anyway, back to apples. I have tried to find the origin of an apple for the teacher but can’t find anything. Maybe it was to keep them sweet, or to get on their right side with good old-fashioned bribery!

Who knows, but here is one for you all, whether you teach or not!

Do have a listen to Bing Crosby and Connie Boswell singing about this particular tradition.
