    Did you know that the Pineapple is the universal symbol of Hospitality? The origin is said to date back to times before colonization. Imperial travelers visited remote islands where pineapples were grown and noticed that the natives that hung fruit at their entrances were welcoming to strangers. This idea began to catch on in Europe from these travelers and eventually developed into a gentry symbol of hospitality.
