Fact of the Day: Jack The Lantern

Jack-o-lanterns have a popular mythology about them. While the folk tale varies, a man named Jack tricked the Devil into not taking his soul. He was not a good man so when he died he could not go to heaven, and the deal he made kept him out of hell. So with nowhere to go, he stays on the Earth with a light that can never go out.
