Me and my boyfriend finally carved our jack-o-lanterns last night! But before I unveil our pumpkins, I wanted to share the history behind the jack-o-lantern. I scanned this out of a Halloween magazine I bought in 1998 called The Joy of Halloween. It was basically the most amazing magazine in the entire world to me at the time. I read it every single day after I got it. My mom even made me and a few friends some of the spooky (and silly) snacks out of the magazine. I loved learning about all the Halloween legends and superstitions and I think this was really about the time I started to see there was more to Halloween than trick-or-treating.
