“Why do you always bring your pineapple baskets to new neighbors?” I remember asking my mother as we walked hand in hand down the street. One hand ensuring I didn’t walk into traffic and the other carefully balancing the welcome basket. I remember the sweet smell of the fresh pineapple in the center that was surrounded by other goodies. Her response was simple, yet something that has always stuck. As she gently tugged my arm back to silently remind me to look both ways, we crossed the street. She explained, “A pineapple is a symbol of Southern hospitality.” Probably seeing the confusion on my little face at the big “H” word, she added, “It’s just what we do to show our new neighbors we welcome them with warmth and friendliness.”
