Jack o’ Lanterns are solid blocks implemented in the Halloween Update on October 30, 2010 and in 0.8.0 for Pocket Edition. They are created by combining a pumpkin and a torch on a Crafting grid. They were intended to be a purely decorative addition; however, they can also be used as a light source. As an added bonus, their light radius is larger than a Torch, and they work underwater. During the Halloween period, Skeletons/Zombies/Zombie Pigmen will wear pumpkins or Jack o' Lanterns on their heads and also have a chance of dropping them. Players can make an Iron Golem with Jack o' Lanterns by placing 4 Iron blocks in a cross formation and a Jack o’ Lantern on top. A similar way can also be done to make a Snow Golem, stacking 2 Snow blocks and placing a Jack o’ Lantern. They can only be placed on the top of blocks, and cannot be placed on non-opaque blocks, although they are able to stay there if the block below is replaced by a block they cannot be placed on. They are also unable to be placed on the side or base of another block.

Trivia

  • Unlike Pumpkins, Jack o’ Lanterns cannot be worn.
  • Jack o’ Lanterns can also be used in the creation of a Snow Golem or an Iron Golem instead of a Pumpkin.
  • Unlike Torches, it can be used as a source of light underwater, like Glowstone.
  • Like all other sources of light in the game, Jack o' Lanterns will melt all snow and ice surrounding it.
