Part Two: Jack-O-Lanterns
Part Two: "Jack-O-Lanterns" To gain entrance to the annual Halloween Fairy Ball, the children must bring certain gifts. From the invitation, they learn that one of these fairy gifts is a Jack-O-Lantern. They run to harvest their pumpkins, only to discover the ones they grew themselves are both very small. Momma then tells them that the first Jack-O-Lanterns were actually carved out of turnips! This amazes both Martin and Sylvia, and they decide to try it. It works wonderfully and they glow a beautiful golden white like the moon.
