Pumpkins are one of the most signature accessories that are seen almost everywhere when Halloween closes in. Pumpkins have been carved as spooky faces for this worldwide celebration since a long time back. This tradition came into existence originating from Ireland. The spooky face or the “jack-o’-lantern” was carved and left outside the house to scare away the evil spirits on Halloween. But now it has taken an aesthetic turn in the modern day.
