In the 5th century BC, the Celts in Ireland believed that October 31st was the most haunted day of the year, so the fortune-tellers at that time used witchcraft to drive away the ghosts and ghosts said to be wandering around. Later in the Middle Ages, people changed to wear animal-shaped costumes and wear scary masks to drive away demons and ghosts in the dark night on the eve of Halloween. Generally, the decoration of Halloween is mainly black and orange. It happens that the end of October is the harvest season of orange pumpkins, so pumpkins have become one of the protagonists of Halloween.


Carving jack-o-lanterns from pumpkins is also a Halloween tradition that also dates back to Ireland. Legend has it that a man named Jack was so miserly that he couldn't enter heaven after death, and because he made fun of the devil he couldn't enter hell, so he could only wander around with a lantern until Judgment Day. Thus, Jack and the jack-o-lantern became symbols of the cursed wandering spirit. In order to scare away these ghosts on Halloween, people use turnips, beets or potatoes to carve scary faces to represent Jack with a lantern, which is the origin of the jack-o-lantern.
