The tradition of carving jack-o’-lanterns for Halloween is a vegetable-mutilating habit from the holiday’s pagan history we haven’t managed to shake off.

We can thank the Irish however for the folk tale behind the jack-o’-lantern’s origin, and it’s a bit more booze-chugging and Satanic than we’d expect of a day now devoted to giving candy to children.

There are a dozen versions of this story, but they all boil down to this: there was a man named Stingy Jack— and Stingy Jack was a fucking asshole.
