Why do we carve pumpkins on halloween?


The tradition dates back to the Celts who carved faces on large turnips and then hollowed out the inside of the vegetable so a candle could sit within it. The light shining out through the carved faces scared away evil spirits and also showed the way to their homes for the good spirits.
