A jack-o’-lantern (or jack o’lantern) is a carved pumpkin or turnip lantern, associated with Halloween. Its name comes from the phenomenon of strange light flickering on mirrors in medieval castles, which was explained as the ghosts of long-dead people.

The carving of jack-o’-lanterns originated in Ireland, where large turnips and potatoes served as effigies of Stingy Jack. In England, artist and printmaker John Leech popularized the jack-o’-lantern image in a 1843 caricature published in Punch magazine. American legend has it that Scottish immigrant Andrew Jackson brought the jack-o’-lantern custom to America in the early 1800s. He carved a pumpkin to use as a lantern while traveling through the Boston Mountains of Arkansas on horseback.
