Christmas Pumpkins

I have trouble throwing away a live plant just because it is out of season and the same hold true for me and pumpkins. Like the poinsettia, the pumpkin causes me some anxiety at the end of the season. It's food, yet not one that I like to eat, and it's still fresh ,so I can't justify throwing it out. So to ease my guilty conscience this is what I came up with this year.. Christmas Caroling Pumpkins. My husband thinks I'm insane, but I kind of like them. They just need some sheet music.

    How long do they last? I have a couple I was thinking of using but not sure if they will rot fast.
