...and I feel I must add...

...there were no Jack-O-Lanterns in ancient Gaul... where most of the Druids were. It did not *start* in the British Isles. (The Druids were *not* pan-Celtic, and it's only a *theory* that they were sent to *study* in Britain, anyway...) The Europeans would have had turnips or something. Gourds. That was a Western tradition, and I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that pumpkins are native to the Americas.

...and the second sacrificial victim is wearing a poodle skirt.

*snicker*

all's I knows is
they were supposed to frighten bad spirits away on the night when they liked to hang out and smoke on your front lawn. :)

You're right
Turnips were the original jack-o-lanterns.

And even then they were not used by the druids. They were used by frightened villagers.
