All about Halloween

ADVERTISEMENTS

Jack eventually died, and because of his antics, God would not allow him into Heaven. The Devil, upset by the trick that Jack had played on him and keeping his word not to claim his soul, also would not allow Jack into Hell. Halloween 2015

ADVERTISEMENTS

Instead, he sent Jack off into the night with only a burning coal to light his way. Jack put the coal into a carved-out turnip and has been roaming the Earth with it ever since. The Irish began to refer to this ghostly figure as “Jack of the Lantern”. Halloween 2015
