(an English approximation might be "root ghosts")

"When we were kids we used to carve Turnips at school. They had ugly faces and grimaces. They cut off the lower pointed part and hollowed them out. Finally the pointed root part came on top. Looked wonderful. Our Turnip variety was inside nice yellow and we left the rest of the earth on the outside. So she got a nice creepy look. Unfortunately, the custom is disappearing more and more and the turnip has been replaced by pumpkins."
