Traditions have always played a big part in what defines any holiday. Carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns or into scary faces then lighting them is a popular Halloween tradition that just must have interesting roots. This odd kind of custom originated hundreds of years ago in Ireland.
In Ireland, folks there have a legend of a clever drunken farmer that pulls one over on the devil. This foul-mouthed drunk and disreputable miser named Stingy Jack who played tricks on everyone and even had a deal with the devil which led to him being turned back at both the gates of heaven and hell upon his death. Stingy Jack was forced to roam the darkness of purgatory as a ghost. Jack made an o’-lantern from a turnip and lump of burning coal to guide his lost soul as he walked the Earth forever.
It was a method as we know used by the ancient Celts to ward off evil spirits during an ancient Celtic holiday known as Samhain (a festival celebrated at the end of summer where many of the traditions of Halloween come from). The Celts would hollow out turnips scooping out the inside then carving the shell into faces in them and place lighted candles inside. The turnips were then either placed in the windows or near doors to frighten away Stingy Jack and to keep other wandering evil spirits from entering a home, or carried around as lanterns.
Back then, Every Halloween, communities in Ireland and Scotland, would craft their own versions of jack-o’-lanterns which were made out of turnips or potatoes -Pumpkins did not exist in Ireland- to scare him and other wayward spirits away.
The tradition became pumpkin-ivied and a new Halloween ritual was born when Irish arrived in America and found the orange veggie (pumpkin) sprouting in abundance in North America.
