Trick-or-treat? Come and take a look at the Jack-o’-lantern done by FIS Middle Scholars from class G0907, they presented their hand carved pumpkins to brighten up this Halloween.
The original idea of the Jack-o’-lantern was to scare away evil spirits. Over time, the practice of carving spooky faces on a pumpkin evolved into other forms of pumpkin-carving. The Irish would set the carved pumpkins by their doors and windows in hopes that they would protect them.
