How did Jack o Lanterns get their beginning?

Where/How did pumpkin carving and decorating originate?

Originally it wasn't pumpkins, it was other fruits and vegetables, the most common being the turnip. This goes back centuries to the Celts and their Samhain festival. Samhain was a harvest festival which marked the end of the year for the Celts. Samhain also served another function, the Celts believed that winter was a time of death when the forces of darkness brought death to the land and tired to kill the sun itself. To strengthen the sun for the long winter months ahead the Celts would burn huge bon fires on Samhain, from which they would use the embers to light their harth fires the next morning.

As Samhain was the end of the year it was also the night on which the forces of darkness began to roam the earth. To protect home and family the Celts would carve turnips into lanterns with horrorific faces to them. Then they would put a candle or burning coal into the lantern and set it outside the doorstep to frighten away the monsters and demons who roamed that night.

As Christianity began to spread the early church had a choice to make when it came to converting people to Christianity. Either tell them the old way were dead and they were now to worship the Christian god or allow them to keep many of the old way but change the meaning. It was actually easier to convert peoples by not banishing all the old ways and thus Samhain became the Christian All Hallows Eve and All Hallowsmas (hallow being another word for saint and mas used to refer to a feast day). All Saints Day is still today on November 1st and the evening before slowly became known as Halloween through a shortening of the name. But in countries where the Celtic influence had been strong many of the old ways remained in place despite the changing of the name and even despite changing views within the different Christian faiths. This includes the turnip lantern. As folkks from these areas came to the new world they brought their traditions with them. And those traditions often were altered a little to suit the new lands they found themselves in.

In the case of the jack-o-lantern the North American native pumpkin was larger than the turnip and proved much easier and more suited to carving into a jack-o-lantern. Thus the pumpkin came to replace the turnip as the primary medium for the lanterns.

The name may have come from the old Irish folk story of Stingy Jack. Jack was supposed to be a mean spirited person who in some way tricks the Devil into promising never to take his soul (in the first version of the story I ever saw Jack get's the Devil to climb up into an apple tree then proceeds to draw a cross onto the tree and only helps the Devil outr of the tree once he promises to never take his soul. When he dies he goes to heaven but is refused entrance for being such a mean old miser. The Devil naturally doesn't let Jack into hell and tells him to return to his own body. When jack complains of it being too dark for him to find the way back the Devil tosses him a coal to light his way, which Jack puts into a turnip he had been gnawing on. Jack's lantern is supposed to be seen as Jack trying to find his way home (it's also known as will-o'-the-wisp, corpse candle, and ignis fatuus among others)
