Why do we have jack o lanterns

WHY

Report as

The original theory is that Jack o' lanterns kept spirits and monsters away. Whether you believe it or not it doesn't really matter. Right now it's so trick-or-treaters can know which houses have candy.

That is where the tradition began & prob brought over by Pilgrims. They may have used smaller turnips before rutabaggas were breed or invented in Sweden.
