Why do we carve pumpkins at Halloween?

Carve pumpkins have been a tradition every Halloween for a century. The origins of the Halloween pumpkin border tradition is from an Irish myth about Stingy Jack, a thief who tricked the Devil for his soul. Long short story, the Devil one day approaches Jack and tells him that it is time for him to die. Then, Jack asks the Devil that he’ll do his last trick to people but he needs the Devil’s help. He asks the Devil to turn into coins so he can steal and cause a riot (The devil is a shapeshifter). 

Then, the Devil agrees and he jumps into Jack's wallets only to find out that he was tricked. Jack tied his wallet very tight so the Devil was trapped. After that, Jack offers the Devil an agreement, he will set him free only if the Devil is not taking his soul. Then, the Devil agreed with Jack. When Jack died, God didn’t allow him to go to heaven, and the Devil already made an agreement that he will not take Jack's souls. So, his soul wandered and traveled around the world ever since.

In Ireland, people start to carve demonic faces out in pumpkin to frighten away Jack’s soul. When the Irish immigrants moved to the US, they brought the traditions and do it every Halloween.

Halloween is a tradition based on the Celtic festival Samhain, a celebration of moments in ancient Ireland and British that marked the end of summer and the beginning of the year on November 1st. It is believed during those days, the souls of the dead would return to visit their homes. It is also believed that Jack who was wandering around the world would come to his hometown at that time.

How do you light a jack o lantern?

  1. Carve your pumpkin. When you are carving the Halloween pumpkin border, don’t forget to consider where to put the hole for lighting. 
  2. Use Candles. If you want a traditional way, then use candles to light your pumpkin.
  3. Create a chimney at the top of the pumpkin so it is easier to put the light or to take it out. Also, when you are using candles, it is important to make a hole at the top because the heat could burn up the pumpkin.
  4. Use a battery-powered light. If you are worried about the candle flames, then you can use a battery-powered light that is shaped like a candle.
