What's buzzing, friends!

Many of us carve the iconic jack-o'-lantern for Halloween. We find a giant pumpkin, carve a face on it, and put a candle inside. A lot of us do this without realizing what the story is behind the jack-o'-lantern. Today's story might not be a fact, we did however want to tell a story that is interesting for Halloween.

This story starts with a drunkard known as "Stingy Jack".

Long ago in Ireland, Stingy Jack was known for being a con man and grifter, along with being a drunk. The devil was curious about his skills, and went one day to claim his soul. Jack was clever, however, and tricked the devil into turning into a silver coin, Jack then trapped the devil in this form by placing him next to a crucifix in his pocket. Jack made a deal for 10 more years of life to set the devil free.

After 10 years the devil returned to claim the soul of Jack, but again Jack tricked the devil into an apple tree, and caught him up there with crucifixes at the base. Again, Jack made a deal with the devil, this time to never go to hell, and the devil agreed, and he was set free.

Eventually Jack did die. He went to heaven, however Jack was denied entry because of his evil ways. He then went to hell and asked to be let in, however, the devil honored his agreement with Jack and said no. The devil did give Jack a little ember of light, to light his way in the darkness, as he wandered for eternity between heaven and hell.

Jack put that ember in a large rutabaga, and now wanders in darkness looking for a place to call home, with only his large rutabaga to light his way.

The fascinating story of the jack-o'-lantern and Stingy Jack is contested by some. You can read more about it on Wikipedia HERE, and judge for yourself. However, before you do, we recommend you get caught up with all this week's updates from D.Buzz by reading the article below.

The best part is, no deals with the devil are needed to be made. Phew ~

Dancing Jack!
