Halloween is on October 31. The name Halloween means hallowed or holy evening because it takes place the day before All Saints’ Day. Jack-O’-Lanterns are seen all around during this season and the Irish have a tale about the origin of jack-o’-lanterns — they say that a man named Jack was unable to enter heaven because of his miserliness. He could not enter hell because he had played practical jokes on the devil so he had to walk the earth with his lantern until Judgement Day.
