Grab Bag- Pineapple Light

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality going back to colonial times. Seafaring men returned from their voyages with shiploads of tropical spices and fruits. To announce their arrival home, the men would attach a pineapple to the fence post inviting relatives and neighbors to drop by for a visit.
