  1. 5 out of 10. That was a fun quiz. I am amazed that American spend so much money on this. When I was young, we carved the jack-o-lantern from swede turnips/rutabagas, which was much harder to hollow out, but it actually looked much scarier than jacks made of pumpkins do. It had a very special smell when you burned a candle inside it too! Oh and by the way, Halloween is not popular in Britain at all, but it is very big here in Ireland, since this is where it originated 🙂
