COVER YOUR WINDOWS WITH SPOOKY

on October 30, 2011

Did you know that decorating “jack-o-lanterns” originated in Ireland? They used to carve out turnips and potatoes. The tradition hooked up with pumpkins in American through Irish immigrants. The name sort of honored a mythical fellow named Stingy Jack who made bargains with the devil. Story has it that Jack carved out a turnip to carry a burning piece of coal the devil gave him…hence, the term “jack-o-lantern.”

And then we have those that sing!

For Your Windows wishes you a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
