The tradition of Jack-o-Lanterns originated centuries ago in Ireland, when people used to carve faces into turnips, potatoes, and beets to place in their windows each fall. The carved veggies were intended to frighten off a spirit named Jack, who was said to wander about the town carrying a lantern. Thus he was known as "Jack of the Lantern," or, more colloquially, "Jack o’ Lantern" (this was Ireland, after all). Irish and English immigrants brought the tradition with them to America, where they found that the pumpkin, a gourd native to the continent, made for an even better carving canvas.
