Navigation: Attack of the Jack-O'-Lanterns is the forty-eighth book in the original Goosebumps book series. It was first published in 1996. The original 1996 cover shows five Pumpkin Heads and a pumpkin-headed dog walking down a street. The Classic Goosebumps 2018 reprint cover shows a fire-breathing Pumpkin Head bursting through a fence lined with Jack-O'-Lanterns.
A jack-o'-lantern (or jack o'lantern) is a carved pumpkin, turnip, or other root vegetable lantern associated with Halloween. Its name comes from the phenomenon of a strange light flickering over peat bogs, called will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern. The name is also tied to the Irish legend of Stingy Jack, a drunkard who bargains with Satan and is doomed to roam the Earth with only a hollowed turnip to light his way.
People have been making jack-o’-lanterns at Halloween for centuries. The practice originated from an Irish myth about a man nicknamed Stingy Jack. In Ireland and Scotland, people began to make their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by carving scary faces into turnips or potatoes and placing them into windows or near doors to frighten away Stingy Jack and other wandering evil spirits. In England, large beets are used. Immigrants from these countries brought the jack-o’-lantern tradition with them when they came to the United States.
Jack O'Lanterns are still lit in modern America, in spite of, or because of, pagan traditions The earliest Jack O'Lanterns, coming from the Celtic countries, were probably indeed not carved pumpkins, but carved turnips.
Jack O'Lanterns are still lit in modern America, in spite of, or because of, pagan traditions. The carved turnip was the precursor to the carved pumpkin that we know today The earliest Jack O'Lanterns, coming from the Celtic countries, were probably indeed not carved pumpkins, but carved turnips. Turnips can obviously still be carved today, as the photograph to the right indicates. They are beautiful when lit and, in essence, are a small-scale Jack O'Lantern.
