The myth of Stingy Jack
A man fooled the devil, not once but twice!
Renowned for his cheapness, "Stingy Jack" invited the Devil to have a drink. Concocting a plan to cheat the bartender, Jack convinced the Devil to turn himself into a coin to pay. The Devil agreed. Instead of paying, Jack put the coin into his pocket next to a silver cross that would prevent the Devil from reverting to his original form.
Eventually Jack freed the Devil on the agreement that he could not claim Jack's soul. Upon jack's death, God would not allow Jack's soul into Heaven. Likewise, the Devil, upset by Jack's tricks wouldn't let him into hell either. The Devil gave Jack a burning coal for light and sent him into the night. Jack as resourceful in spirit as in life, placed the coal in a turnip and has wandered the earth since. The ghost of Stingy Jack is known as "Jack of the Lantern," or simply "Jack O'Lantern."
