History Of Halloween
By Cameron Marcelle

Halloween is now celebrated as a time of spookiness, pumpkins and trick or treat. It dates back over 2000 years to when the ancient Celtic tribes celebrated the festival of Samhain.  In my family, where we are a family with members born on holidays (my mother’s being Halloween), we have always enjoyed the custom of carving pumpkins.  My wife and I carved pumpkins every year – even before our kids came along.   Matter of fact, we just went to the 2nd annual Great Delaware Pumpkin Carve Festival in Harrington to get some new ideas, you should check it out next year.  For us it’s a tradition, but I was curious about where it started.  Our traditional carvings are usually scary faces but have also been everything from names to pop icons.  It was interesting to find that carving pumpkins came from the Irish and of course, there is a story to go with it. 

The Legend of "Stingy Jack"

Stingy Jack was a miserable, old drunk who loved playing tricks on anyone and everyone. One dark, Halloween night, Jack ran into the Devil himself in a local public house. Jack tricked the Devil by offering his soul in exchange for one last drink. The Devil quickly turned himself into a sixpence to pay the bartender, but Jack immediately snatched the coin and deposited it into his pocket, next to a silver cross that he was carrying. Thus, the Devil could not change himself back and Jack refused to allow the Devil to go free until the Devil had promised not to claim Jack's soul for ten years.

The Devil agreed, and ten years later Jack again came across the Devil while out walking on a country road. The Devil tried collecting what he was due, but Jack thinking quickly, said, "I'll go, but before I do, will you get me an apple from that tree?"

The Devil, thinking he had nothing to lose, jumped up into the tree to retrieve an apple. As soon as he did, Jack placed crosses all around the trunk of the tree, thus trapping the Devil once again. This time, Jack made the Devil promise that he would not take his soul when he finally died. Seeing no way around his predicament, the Devil grudgingly agreed.

When Stingy Jack eventually passed away several years later, he went to the Gates of Heaven, but was refused entrance because of his life of drinking and because he had been so tight-fisted and deceitful. So, Jack then went down to Hell to see the Devil and find out whether it was possible to gain entrance into the depths of Hell, but the Devil kept the promise that had been made to Jack years earlier and would not let him enter.

"But where can I go?" asked Jack.

"Back to where you came from!" replied the Devil.

The way back was windy and very dark. Stingy Jack pleaded with the Devil to at least provide him with a light to help find his way. The Devil, as a final gesture, tossed Jack an ember straight from the fires of Hell. Jack placed the ember in a hollowed-out turnip...one of Jack's favorite foods which he always carried around with him whenever he could steal one. From that day forward, Stingy Jack has been doomed to roam the earth without a resting place and with only his lit turnip to light the way in the darkness.

Stingy Jack turnip has become our "Jack-O-Lantern."

Happy belated Halloween!
