ITEM #: 26034 Mr. Jack O' Lantern Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. In the shape of a snowman, this Mr. Jack O' Lantern glass ornament is a bright orange pumpkin man with flower buttons, a purple glittered scarf around his neck and a star adorned black hat. He is perfect for Halloween or even Christmas. Jack O' Lanterns come from the Irish
legend of 'Stingy Jack,' a man so
mean the devil wouldn't let him
into hell. He was forced to roam
the earth using a carved turnip
with a piece of coal for a lantern
and was called 'Jack of the Lantern.'
Thus began the carving of pumpkins
as Jack O' Lanterns to place in
windows to scare away evil spirits.
