Pineapples have long been a symbol of hospitality. Early explorers placed a pineapple at the entrance of a village to mean, all were welcome. This tradition continued on and sailors would hang the fruit on their home’s door to signal their safe return from a voyage and for people to come visit. Carolinians are accustomed to sleeping in beds are adorned with pineapple carvings. A guest in a Southerner’s home knows they’ve overstayed their welcome, it’s said, when the pineapple posts are removed.
