Go really old school by carving TURNIPS into Jack O’Lanterns instead of PUMPKINS!!!

Halloween turnips

Did you know that well before people were carving pumpkins they were carving TURNIPS?! It’s true! According to this video, they did it to keep evil spirits away!

Turning these tiny root vegetables into lanterns was a thing years before folks started carving into big orange gourds. This video also shows you how YOU can make your own Turnip Jack O’Lantern!

    Well, I am even ashamed to admit that I have known about this for a long time … (thanks to the special course on folklore). However, it is a turnip or a pumpkin, there is not much difference. I do not think that evil spirits will be very picky, especially when they will be really scared. Thanks for the video, Pee-wee!
