Jack and the Devil

A man named Jack once came upon the Devil who was treed by a wolf. Jack used his walking stick to move the wolf back so the Devil could come down. As the Devil was leaving he told Jack that for his kind act he would never allow him into Hell. Many years later Jack died and approached the gates to heaven. He was rebuked and told you are not wanted here. So he left and went into the darkness using a gourd for a lantern. He then approached Hell and asked the Devil if he could enter. The Devil remembering his promise denied him but flipped some coals from hell fire into his gourd to light his way through the nether world giving us the Jack O’ Lantern.
