The Origin of Halloween is planted in Ireland’s ancient Samhain festival, which prompted earth-worshiping Celtics to offer praise to the Gods for the harvest, and treats to the spirits for safety .

The History of the Jack O’Lantern that has become a staple in Halloween culture over the years is also steeped in ancient Irish mythology.

Jack made a deal with the devil that he would set him free provided he would spare his soul for the next ten years. The devil agreed and Jack continued to live a life of debauchery for ten years to the day. On the expiration date of their deal, the devil came to collect his dues but Jack again coerced Satan—this time into climbing up an apple tree to pick fruit to satiate his hunger. Once Satan was up in the tree, Jack surrounded the tree with crucifixes again trapping the devil. In exchange for his freedom, the devil agreed to never claim Stingy Jack’s soul.
