Spoooooooooky! a pumpkin carved out to make a Jack o' Lantern.

One of the traditions at Halloween is to display a pumpkin carved into a comic or a gruesome head. A candle is placed inside, and this makes a Jack o' Lantern. In earlier times in Ireland and Scotland instead of a pumpkin a turnip was used or even a fat cabbage stalk. The lantern was placed in a dark window and was thought to keep the evil spirits away. Let's hope it works!
