Halloween's origins date back some 2,000 years to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain.

People have been making jack-o'-lanterns at Halloween for centuries. The practice originated from an Irish myth about a man nicknamed "Stingy Jack."
The most common contemporary meaning of jack-o’-lantern is the candlelit carved pumpkin which is a ubiquitous symbol of Halloween.
