Merry Christmas!

I chose this colorful squash to adorn my Thanksgiving table weeks ago.  It did that job, then got moved to a less spectacular spot, and left there with the promise to be painted.  It waited for me to find a moment—without developing a blemish or signs of aging.  We should all be so lucky. 

I don't know what kind of squash this is, but I hope to open it on a cold afternoon and bake it.  I loved the colors in the real item. I am anticipating a yellow pulp inside, but don't have any idea what surprises await.  If you know what this is can you let me know?

God bless you, one and all.
