Halloween won’t fun be without Jack-O-Lanterns. With only a week to go, so many people are searching online for the best Jack-O-Lantern pictures and patterns. I’ve compiled a small gallery of different pumpkin carving patterns to give you some ideas this Halloween. There are traditional, geeky, political, scary and fun patterns here – something for everyone.
Just to refresh your memory, here’s a folklore about Jack-O-Lanter: An old Irish folk tale tells of Stingy Jack, a lazy yet shrewd farmer who uses a cross to trap the Devil. One story says that Jack tricked the Devil into climbing an apple tree, and once he was up there Jack quickly placed crosses around the trunk or carved a cross into the bark, so that the Devil couldn’t get down. Another myth says that Jack put a key in the Devil’s pocket while he was suspended upside-down.
