What does Halloween have to do with pumpkin lights?

Pumpkin lamp originated from ancient Ireland. It is said that a man named Jack is drunk and fond of mischief. On Halloween, he trapped the devil in a tree. He didn't allow the devil to come down until the devil promised never to let him live in hell. After Jack died, because he didn't believe in God, he couldn't go to heaven, and the devil wouldn't let him go to hell. In order to help Jack find his way back to the world, the devil gave him a piece of burning charcoal. Jack put the burning charcoal in a lantern carved with big carrots, the first "Jack's Lantern", to help him find his way back to Ireland, but he never found it, so he will never find it Far away with lanterns wandering the world. In the old Irish legend, this little candle is placed in a hollowed out radish, called "Jack lantens". The ancient radish lamp evolved into jack-o-lantern made of pumpkin. It is said that soon after the Irish arrived in the United States, they found that pumpkins were superior to carrots in terms of both source and carving, so pumpkins became the favorite of Halloween.
