The Jack-o-lantern Symbol
The jack -o-lantern is one of the most used symbols to decorate our homes. Although not a scary symbol it is widely used by people. In today’s time we usually carve pumpkins and use it as a decor item but in olden times the pumpkin lanterns had an actual purpose.
It was believed that the lanterns were used to chase away evil spirits. Nowadays the lantern is just to welcome trick or treaters and give a good look for a perfect Halloween atmosphere.
