Jack the Lantern is the biggest most iconic symbol of the holiday Halloween associated with carving pumpkins and illuminating them. The tradition actually started in Scotland and Ireland where people would carve lanterns from turnips or potatoes and leave them in front of their doorstep to fend off evil spirits. As the tradition moved to the US people realized that pumpkins can be carved more easily compared to turnips and potatoes.
