Ghoul’s Punch

Ingredients:
6 cups unsweetened pineapple juice, chilled
3 cups cold water

4 blood orange or orange slices

Frozen Hands:
Cranberry juice cocktail
2-3 clear plastic gloves, unpowdered (or if powdered, washed thoroughly)

Directions:
To make Frozen Hands, pour cranberry juice cocktail into clear plastic gloves, filling so fingers can move easily. Seal gloves tightly with rubber bands.

Float orange slices and Frozen Hands in punch. Makes eight (10-ounce) servings.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
