Pineapple a Welcoming Gift

A fresh pineapple is a great gift for neighbors, relatives and friends that have food allergies, diabetic or watching their weight. If you don't have time or want to bake or craft something for a special teacher, pastor, or Sunday school teacher, consider giving a pineapple. 
Columbus discovered the pineapple in 1493 and brought it to Europe from the Indes. It became associated with the return of ships on extended voyages and an emblem of welcome and hospitality. You can buy them at a reasonable price and with a little holiday ribbon and a card they look very festive. Plus it is something your children can help with, let them make their own card, pick out the ribbon and help
 purchase the pineapples.
I will be sharing this post to these blog parties:
