“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:)
OUTDOOR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS. Use a tension rod between front door jams to hang Christmas garlands or ornaments without any nails, staples or adhesive. Wrap in ribbon and battery powered lights. Would be useful to hang wreaths between windows too.
Thankful Pumpkin Tradition | Would do this on craft pumpkins that could be saved and put out each year to show God's goodness through the years. I'd have each family member write their own blessings on the annual pumpkin.
