Grab a pumpking and knife and start carving because in this puzzle we feature a work in progress will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern. ( a hollowed-out pumpkin in which holes are cut to make a monstrous or comical face). To create the lantern effect, a light source is placed within the hollow interior. It is believed that the custom of making jack-o'-lanterns at Halloween began in Ireland. The lanterns were variously said to represent the spirits or supernatural beings, or were used to ward off evil spirits. It has also been suggested that the jack-o'-lanterns originally represented Christian souls in purgatory, as Halloween is the eve of All Saints' Day. In the United States, the carved pumpkin was first associated with the harvest season in general, long before it became an emblem of Halloween. Now that you know a bit more about these fun Halloween decorations solve this fun jigsaw and get into the holiday spirit. Have fun!
