Jack-o-Lantern


An old Irish folk tale tells of Jack, a drunken thief who tricked the Devil. One story says that Jack lured the Devil into climbing an apple tree, and once he was up there Jack quickly placed crosses around the trunk or carved a cross into the bark, so that the Devil couldn't get down. Jack let the Devil go when he promised to never take his soul.
