The custom of making jack-o-lanterns at Halloween probably began in Ireland. In the 19th century, turnips or mangel wurzels, hollowed out to act as a lantern and carved with grotesque faces, were used at Halloween in parts of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.

In these Gaelic-speaking regions, Halloween was also the festival of Samhain and was seen as a time when supernatural beings (the Aos S?), and the souls of the dead, roamed the earth (as was believed in some other parts of Europe).

By those who made them, the lanterns were said to represent the spirits or supernatural beings or were used to ward off evil spirits. For example, sometimes they were used by Halloween guisers to frighten people and sometimes they were set on windowsills to keep harmful spirits out of one?s home.
