The Legend of Pumpkin Carving
How Pumpkin Carving Carved Its Way Into the Americas
Written by Sky Taylor, Sky at Dawn
The Celtic roots of Halloween birthed visions of carved pumpkins beckoning All Hallows Eve. According to legend of pumpkin carving, beginning sundown on October 31st through November 1st marked a thinning of the veil separating earth from the realm of the dead.
As a welcoming light, chunks of coal were placed into carved pumpkins to light the way for loved ones, the light cozy and inviting. The light supposedly also served to lock out the unwelcome evil spirits.
During All Hallows Eve, carved-out pumpkins, turnips, gourds and melons were scattered outdoors, some placed in windows, some on porches. Eventually, the coal was replaced with the more modern candle, but both served as the dividing light.
With the Europeans migration, the discovery of a larger pumpkin brought to life a new tradition in the Americas. Today, pumpkin carving has become an art with the pumpkin artist making use of more tools than the simple pumpkin cutter.
But one may still find lighted pumpkins anchored in houses perched on city streets and county lanes. The legend of pumpkin carving is a tradition that will never die.
