… a strange light that flickers over peat bogs

October 31, 2014

So says Wiki re how the Jack-o’-lantern gets its name. Seems it’s redolent of some mysterious illuminations that have been spied on an atmospheric Oct 31st on occasion. Good also to hear that, along with pumpkins, turnips (turnips!) may also be crafted so as to form that wilfully glinting smirk we love to play with!
