Punkie Night is a Westcountry custom practised on the last Thursday of October related to Halloween in Somerset in England. Children will march around with a jack o'lantern, singing a song which goes :

"It's Punkie Night tonight It's Punkie Night tonight Adam and Eve would not believe It's Punkie Night tonight"
There are some variants of this old rhyme which also include these lines:

"Give me a candle, give me a light If you don't, you'll get a fright"
or alternatively:
"Give me a candle give me light If you haven't a candle, a penny's all right"
