Well,
I am pretty sure you can not keep pumpkins for a year!!! Fake ones yes...real ones no!!! :lol:
You'd just have to buy a new one next year!

You can help them to last 7-10 days by:
- keeping them outside in a dry cool place at night
- soaking them in 5% bleach water after about 4-5 days (after they dry up a little)
- rubbing vasoline on the cut parts (to keep them from drying up)

They sell a product called Pumpkin Dunkin which will help preserve the pumpkin for 2 weeks or more. There are a few more products like that.

Fumpkins are foam pumpkins. You can carve them just the same as real pumpkins but they last forever! You can't use a real candle in them, but they sell little lights that you can put in instead.

Happy carving,
Mark
