He invited the devil for a drink and he cheated the devil by not paying for the drink. Several times, he did the same and deceived the devil in many ways. After his death, his soul was not accepted in Heaven due to his bad character and he was rejected in hell too because he has tricked the devil himself. So he was sent off into the dark night with only a burning coal to light his way. Jack put this burning coal into a carved out turnip and has been roaming all over the Earth ever since. Thus, the scary figure was referred to as the “Jack of Lanterns” or simply “Jack O ‘Lantern”.
