Light the “Ghoul Log” with this Circa 1920s “Halloween Log” Lantern

Remember when you were a kid and your parents would go out into the woods for Halloween to hew a mighty bow from the largest tree for you to use to make your Halloween Log lantern? Your Halloween “ghoul log”? Me neither, which is what makes this circa 1920s anthropomorphic log lantern that much more special. Anyone know if this was a thing or just random Halloween awesomeness?
