Halloween is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. It's time to bring out the scariest decor and costume to chase away the evil spirits.
Jack-O'-Lanterns have been part of the Halloween tradition for centuries. It started with an Irish folktale about Stingy Jack, and when Irish immigrants made their way to America, which is the native place of pumpkins, they brought the tradition with them. In Ireland and Scotland, people had made their own version of Jack’s lanterns by carving scary faces into vegetables like turnips or potatoes. They would place them on windows or near doors to frighten away the ghost of Stingy Jack and other wandering evil spirits.
Carving a scary face on a pumpkin has become a part of Halloween festivities across the world now. People do different versions of the pumpkin face everywhere and the face you pick can reveal what your favorite Halloween costume is.
