Everyone is thinking that summer is coming to an end, and it will be accompanied by the arrival of autumn. Most people will prepare for Halloween, one of our favorite autumn festivals of the year, through classic traditions such as pumpkin carving.
How does pumpkin carving come from?
The Irish have a story about "Stingy Jack". Jack is a man who has deceived the devil many times. After his death, his soul can neither go to heaven nor go to hell. With nowhere to go, he had to walk forward aimlessly, carrying a hollow white radish with charcoal fire given by the devil to illuminate the radish, eager to finally find a place to rest. He walked like this and never stopped. Later, people who heard this story began to carve patterns on white radishes to celebrate "Halloween", hoping to drive away demons and gain the blessing of gods. Gradually, everyone discovered that pumpkin is a better carving material than white radish, so pumpkins have been used instead.
What does the Halloween pumpkin lantern symbolize?
Pumpkins are orange, so orange has become the traditional Halloween color. Carving pumpkin lanterns from pumpkins is also a Halloween tradition, and its history can be traced back to Ireland. Originally in the ancient Irish legend, this small candle was placed in hollowed-out kohlrabi. It is said that soon after the Irish arrived in the United States, they discovered that pumpkins are better than kohlrabi in terms of source and carving, and their appearance is also better than that of kohlrabi. Rutabaga is beautiful and close to the shape of the face, so pumpkin lanterns gradually replaced rutabaga as the new favorite of Halloween.
