Hello, this is my new and improved blog & website. I am in the process of transferring my blog using the WordPress platform from the Blogger platform. This is my first “official” post using WordPress.
Welcome! Today I was reading about the symbolism of the pineapple. Do you know why it became a symbol of hospitality or how it got the name pineapple? It was interesting learning more about the history of the behind this welcoming fruit. One of my favorite historical facts about the pineapple is that during Colonial times, households would “rent” a pineapple to have on display at their tables to welcome their dinner guests. Afterward the rented pineapple would be purchased by a more affluent family who would actually eat the fruit.
