Introduction

Halloween has become one of the coolest days of the year across the world. Pumpkins are commonly carved into decorative lanterns called jack-o’-lanterns for the Halloween season.  The carved pumpkin was first associated with the harvest season in general, long before it became an emblem of Halloween.

The word Halloween is first attested in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows-Even (“evening”), that is, the night before All Hallows Day.   [23 Pictures]
