Jack o`lanterns cannot be placed without a block under them, but once placed, will remain even if the block underneath is mined away. When placed, jack o`lanterns automatically face the player. Jack o`lanterns cannot be placed on a transparent block.

Jack o`lanterns are transparent in their rendering only, which means that they have the attributes that all opaque solid blocks have. For instance, they can suffocate mobs, and blocks attached to another block (such as torches and rails) can be placed on top of them or on their sides.

1.1_02 Jack o`lanterns are labeled pumpkins when moused over in the inventory screen.
1.2 Jack o`lanterns previously had the same icon and name in the inventory as pumpkins, making it impossible to tell which is which just by looking at them. Be that as it may, it wasn`t possible to stack jack o`lanterns with pumpkins.
1.5_01 Jack o`lanterns that already exist in-game now all appear facing the opposite way they were placed before the update. Placing a Jack o`lantern will also have it placed facing away from you, as opposed to facing in your direction, as was the case before the update.
1.8 With the introduction of pumpkin farming, jack o`lanterns are now a renewable resource, because the player can make their torches from charcoal.
