In case you didn't know this, the Halloween tradition began back in Ireland. At the time, large turnips and potatoes were used as pumpkins are used today.

Actually, the name jack-o'-lantern is from an Irish myth that centers on a man known as Stingy Jack.

The tradition was brought to America by Irish immigrants. Being the home of the pumpkin, this fruit became part of the tradition.

The Irish myth says that Stingy Jack invited the Devil for a drink. However, as his name suggests, Jack had a problem spending his own money to pay for his drink.

Nevertheless, he had the persuasion skills to convince the Devil to change himself into a coin, which he could use to pay for his drink. However, his stinginess knew no bounds, and as soon as the Devil turned into a coin, he decided to hold on to the money.

He put the coin next to a silver cross to make sure the Devil could not turn into his original form.

Ultimately, Jack agreed to let the Devil go, but under a few conditions: first of all, he would leave Jack alone for a year. The Devil was also not to take his soul after he died.

However, it seems that Jack was not done playing tricks with the Devil just yet. The following year, he managed to persuade the Devil to climb up a tree to pick fruit.

Once the Devil got up the tree, Jack carved a cross on the bark of the tree to make sure the Devil was stuck up there. This time, he had to promise that he would not bother Jack for a decade to come down.

Not long afterward, Jack was dead. However, God was not eager to have the mischievous trickster in heaven.

The Devil was still angry over the tricks Jack had played on him. However, he did not claim his soul as he had promised.

That meant Jack could neither get into heaven nor into hell. Jack was left with nothing but a dark night and burning coal to show him the way.

He put the coal into a carved-out turnip and started to roam the earth with it. Due to this outcome, he got the name "Jack of the Lantern," which was later shortened into Jack O'Lantern.

Ireland and Scotland celebrated the holiday by carving many types of Jack's lanterns. Typically, this involved carving scary faces into turnips and potatoes.

They would then place their creations near windows or doors. This was done to frighten Stingy Jack and any other evil spirits that could be roaming around in the night.

In England, large beets were preferred for this ritual.

When the immigrants eventually made it to America, they found pumpkins. The fruit proved to be perfect for creating jack-o'-lanterns.
