“After you scoop out and carve your pumpkin, dip it in a large container of bleach and water (use a 1 tsp:1 gal mix).  The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer.   Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water.  Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.”

To start a tradition that will surely last,  here's the story about the pickle of glass.  The night before Christmas it's hung on the tree  Santa does it secretly.  And on Christmas morning when you arise,  the first to find it gets a sweet surprise.  A family tradition for all to share,  you'll look for the pickle year after year. The dollar store has these with this same saying if anyone is interested in picking one up:)
