Where Did Jack O Lanterns Come from?

On Halloween it is tradition in the modern day to carve a pumpkin, which would then make it a jack o’ lantern. Jack o’ Lanterns only seem to come from a mythical story, there are several different stories but the one that is the most described would be of a man named Jack had met the devil who told him it was his time to die, Jack tricked the devil and trapped him with a cross and would only let him go if he didn’t take his soul. Well when jack died he was a sinner so he didn’t go to heaven and he was barred from hell because of the deal. Long story short Jack asked for some light as he had nowhere to go and the devil threw an ember that would never run out Jack carved out a turnip and put it inside, which then was the jack o’ lantern created.
