HALLOWEEN & THE LEGEND OF JACK O’LANTERN
Traditions of the World
Category: Myths and Legends
Jack O’Lantern Legend comes from the old Celtic mythology.
About 2,000 years ago, ancient Celts had a different calendar, and they would divide the year into two seasons that marked the transitions of summer and winter: Beltaine on May1st., and Samhain on the first of November.
They believed this last night of the year, the ghosts and spirits would visit them, and this is the way the myth of Jack O’Lantern began.
This classic and singular character is the origin of the carved pumpkins we love in Halloween. Do you know the source of the word “Halloween?”
