English - At Halloween in 1835, the Dublin Penny Journal carried a lengthy discourse on the legend of "Jack-o'-the-Lantern". In 1837, the Limerick Chronicle refers to a local pub holding a carved gourd competition and presenting a prize to "the best crown of Jack McLantern". The term "McLantern" also appears in an 1841 publication of the same paper.
A lantern made from a hollowed-out pumpkin in which holes are cut to represent facial features, typically made at Halloween. Sometimes this word also described a type of will-o-the-wisp.
