Jack O'Lanterns come from the Irish legend of "Stingy Jack," a man so mean the devil wouldn'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 Lanterns." Thus began the carving of pumpkins as Jack O'Lanterns to place in windows to scare away evil spirits.
