Jack-o'-lanterns

As the story goes, Stingy Jack was a miserable man who liked to play tricks on everyone, even the Devil himself.
When Jack finally died, according to Irish legend he was not admitted to heaven or hell, so he had to wander about forever in the darkness between heaven and hell. Jack placed the ember in a hollowed out Turnip and for that day onward, Stingy Jack roamed the earth without a resting place, lighting his way as he went with his "Jack O'Lantern".
On all Hallow's eve, the Irish hollowed out Turnips, pumpkins and potatoes to keep Stingy Jack away, starting a long tradition.
