Default Jack-O-Lanterns

It’s spooky time! Let’s see those pumpkins! Here is mine from last year, it has been extremely cold where I live so I am carving a new one Friday night to ensure that it makes it to Halloween.

That pumpkin will strike fear into the hearts of about half the country haha. It really does capture his essence, and it’s almost the right shade of orange. Unfortunately, I assume many of those people will be boarded up in their houses with the lights off this Halloween.
I have been curious about trying to play with carving layers and textures into the pumpkin like that. Some people are able to make insane works of art with those techniques.

Theres really nothing too it, print out a pattern online, carve the pumpkin and then place a flashlight inside so you can see the light increase as you carve certain spots.

Its not a candle inside, its a cheap incandescent flashlight for that orange glow.

According to Irish folklore, a man called 'Stingy Jack' was sentenced to roam the earth for eternity by the devil. A ghostly figure of the night, Jack walks with a burning coal inside of a carved out turnip to light his way. Irish folklore began to refer to this spooky figure as 'Jack of the Lantern', which then became 'Jack O'Lantern'.

Halloween started with the Irish festival of Samhain (pronounced 'sow-win') or 'All Hallows Eve', which then became known as Halloween. This was a time of year when the veil between this world and the next was at its weakest and spirits roamed the world. This legend is why people in Ireland began to make their own versions of Jack's lantern by carving grotesque faces into turnips, potatoes and beets, placing them by their homes to frighten away Stingy Jack and other wandering evil spirits.

Irish migrants in the 19th century brought this legend across the Atlantic, where they discovered that pumpkins were easier to carve than turnips.

And, of course, if you've raided in the Plane of Fear, then you've certainly come across across a few 'Stingy Jacks'!
