The jack-o’-lantern

Originally, the Halloween pumpkin was called Jack-o-lantern, and was popularly known as the typical hollow gourd with a lit candle insideThis typical Halloween tradition comes specifically from an Irish legend, saying that there was a man named Jack, who was extremely bad and vindictive. Because of this, when he died he could not come either in heaven or hell. Since then, he was condemned to wander around the world with only the help of a cabbage with a candle inside. As is common,  Irish Americans decided to change the pumpkin cabbage, and tried to emulate the bad Jack.feliz-Halloween-casi-negro_001 feliz-halloween-cuidado-el-miedo-L-Fk75lG feliz-halloween-felicitaciones-pintado-por-amalia-9831379
