DIY Jack O Lantern

It’s that time of year again, when old dress-up clothes resurface, cobwebs are strewn over house facades, and sales for pumpkins perfect for carving into jack-o-lanterns skyrocket. Making a jack-o-lantern is a tradition that dates back to 19th century Ireland, where hollowed out root vegetables such as turnips and pumpkins were transformed into lanterns to ward off evil spirits. As Halloween becomes more and more popular in, people carve different kinds of pumpkins every year on October 31.
