    • Origins of Jack O'Lantern An Irish ...........................(tale) tells us where the origins of the name Jack o'lantern come from. There once was a man named Jack who liked to play tricks on people. He lived a long, mischievous .......................(life). One day he tricked Satan into climbing a tree. Jack then carved the image of a Holy Cross in the ...........................(trunk) of the tree. This trapped the Devil up the tree. Jack made a deal with the Devil that: he would let the Devil down the tree, if the Devil.....................................( promised) to never tempt him again. After Jack died, he was not permitted into ................................. (Heaven) because of his evil ways. He was also denied access to Hell because he had tricked the ........................(Devil). The devil gave him a single ember to light his way through the freezing blackness. This flame was put inside a hollowed-out turnip to keep it glowing. As Jack walked his never ending journey as punishment for his trickery, he carried a burning coal inside a turnip to help him see along the .................................(roads) everywhere he travelled. Soon he was known as "Jack of the lantern" or Jack O'Lantern. In Ireland, turnips were used as their Jack's lanterns originally. However, immigrants to America, found ................................(pumpkins) more plentiful than turnips. The Jack-O-Lantern in America was a hollowed-out pumpkin, lit with an ember.
