THE LEGEND OF JACK O LANTERN
It is an Irish legend, it tells the story of a very bad man: Jack.
Jack is a gambler, he likes drinking, fighting, playing cards and he often cheats. He doesn't work he spends all his time in pubs.
One day, he meets the Devil and he is afraid of him. He thinks the Devil wants to take his soul. So, he decides to play a trick to the Devil. He asks the Devil if he can climb up on the top
of a tree very fast. The Devil answers "I'm very powerful, I can do everything!". Jack challenges him: " I don't believe it! Show it to me!". Then the Devil climbs up on the top of a tree very fast to show Jack he is very powerful.
Jack carves a cross on the wood body of the tree so the Devil can't go down. The Devil makes a promise to Jack: "If you let me go down, I will never take your soul." Jack accepts and he cancels the cross. The Devil goes away.
One day during a fight Jack dies. He goes to knock the Heaven's door but God refuses him because he is a bad man. Then he goes to knock the Hell's door but the Devil sends him away because of the promise and he forces Jack to wander in the darkness for ever.
Moreover, the Devil throws toward him some burning coal. Jack pick it up and put it in a big carved turnip to make a lantern to light his way in the darkness.
