Pineapple for the Holidays
Did you know that pineapples are a showing of hospitality? It’s true! Back in history, pineapples were so rare that they would be used as centerpieces of parties. Though not to be eaten, but simply admired. They became a sign of hospitality and sparing no expense for those you care about.
In the 19th century, the pineapple became a holiday centerpiece. A seasonal display like the ones we decorate with today, featuring items like apples, pinecones, holly, and fir leaves surrounded the star pineapple in the center of the display. At this time the pineapple was more readily available, allowing it to also be used in baked goods, candied, or to add sweetness to the punch.
These traditions carry on today. They may not be the first thing comes to mind, but pineapples make for great decorations and are an excellent ingredient in holiday recipes. In fact, check them out for $1.99 in our ad this week, as your holiday preparation kicks into high gear.

Holiday Cookies How-To
One of our favorite parts of the holiday season are the tradition and coziness of holiday cookies! Whether you’re enjoying dessert with family and friends or leaving a tasty treat for Santa, cookies play an important role in holiday celebrations. They’ve become a staple of the season!
Did you know that the tradition of leaving cookies out for Santa began during the Great Depression? It was a lesson in giving and doubled as a sign of appreciation from young children for the gifts they received, even in economic hardship. This tradition continues today as children thank Santa for his hard work during the holidays. And cookies continue to be a vital part of celebrating.
