Where did they originate?
How did they become carved pumpkins?
I've been a life long Halloween celebrator, and interested in the history of the jack-o-lantern and where it came from. 
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class will touch on the celebration of Halloween, and how it evolved from the Celtic celebration of Samhain, and how that was a time that it was believed that supernatural beings roamed the Earth. It will also talk about how jack-o-lanterns were lit to help ward off evil spirits. And Stingy Jack is described as a drunk and bad man, who made a deal with the devil.
