The original Halloween Jack-O’-Lantern was first recorded in Ireland and was made from a turnip instead of a pumpkin.
Well formed teeth visible in a mature cystic teratoma(dermoid cyst) of the ovary. The tissues of a teratoma, although normal in themselves, may be quite different from surrounding tissues and may be highly disparate; teratomas have been reported to contain hair, teeth, bone and, very rarely, more complex organs or processes such as eyes,torso, and hands, feet, or other limbs.

The bloodwood tree(Pterocarpus angolensis) is a deciduous tree with a high canopy, reaching about 15m in height and has dark bark. The red sap is used traditionally as a dye and in some areas mixed with animal fat to make a cosmetic for faces and bodies. It is also believed to have magical properties for the curing of problems concerning blood, apparently because of its close resemblance to blood. The name bloodwood for these trees stems from the dark red to brown sap that accumulates on wounds on the trunks.
