Legends

The Pumpkin may likely be based on Jack-o'-lanterns, carved pumpkin lanterns associated with Halloween, though there are also turnip, or other root vegetable lantern. The phenomenon of a strange light flickering over peat bogs, called will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern, is where the name comes from. Its name is also tied to the Irish legend of Stingy Jack, a drunkard who bargained with Satan and was doomed to roam the Earth with only a hollowed turnip to light his way.
