We all associate carving pumpkins with Halloween, but did you know that before pumpkins became affiliated with Halloween it was custom to carve turnips and other root vegetables into jack-o'-lanterns? Join us in carving both pumpkins and turnips while exploring the history of this beloved Halloween tradition. We'll provide all the materials needed to get crafty and creepy as we cover everything from how the Maori people of New Zealand would carve gourds over 700 years ago, to the spooky Irish legend of Stingy Jack. Be sure to turnip for this one!
