JACK: An Ancient Celtic Tradition: The Jack O'lantern Origins Story, or How the Jack O'lantern Came to Be- with audio!

Free sample

  The Jack O' Lantern comes from ancient Ireland and the Celtic Isles! In the middle ages, each village would have a night watchman, or town crier. The Night Watchman scared kids so they would stay indoors and out of trouble. He became known as Jack in the stories, the turnip changed into a pumpkin over time, and it was all added into the Halloween celebrations!

JACK comforts the troubled and troublemakers in this delightful revisiting of a classic theme about overcoming hardships and facing fears -- click the play button at the top left of each page to have Andy Taylor, the voice of the US Open read to you.
