It is believed that the custom of making jack-o’-lanterns at Hallowe’en time began in Ireland. In the 19th century, “turnips or mangel wurzels, hollowed out to act as lanterns and often carved with grotesque faces,” were used on Halloween in parts of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.
Now, with only 13 days til’ Hallowe’en it’s time to see your pumpkins! Spend a festive time with the family carving jack-o’-lanterns.
Share them with us, and we’ll post them in our Multi Purpose Room for everyone to see.
