Jack O Lanterns come from the Irish legend of Stingy Jack, a man so mean the devil would t let him into hell. He was forced to roam the earth using a carved turnip with a piece of coal for a lantern and was called Jack of the Lantern. Thus began the carving of pumpkins as Jack O Lanterns to place in windows to scare away evil spirits.
