Ward off evil spirits this Halloween... with turnips?

When Halloween as we know it today was having its humble beginnings in Ireland, they carved turnips and small gourds into jack-o-lantern faces to ward off bad spirits. By placing these candle-lit, scary faced, turnips in the windows of their home, they stayed safe! And check this out, every time the candle flickers, a spirit is near! So let's keep those spirits good, shall we?

These days in America, pumpkin carving is more popular, but why not try carving a turnip today? It's way cheaper to boot! What's it like less than a dollar for one turnip? Also, unlike pumpkin guts, you can boil and eat the stuff you take out of the turnip. Frugal.
