Turnip or pumpkin for Hallowe’en?
While many of have nostalgic feelings about carving
out a turnip, it’s incredibly difficult, and, it has to be said, not nearly as
aesthetically pleasing as a pumpkins, Jack O Lanterns are so called from the
legend of Stingy Jack, a drunkard who bargains with Satan, and is doomed to
roam the Earth with only a hollowed out turnip to light his way.
If your choice is the pumpkin, then
head to Arnprior in Stirlingshire. It’s a great day
out for all the family.
