15 reasons why autumn is the best season

Written by Taran Bassi of MetroUK (with some snarky commentary from an affiliate of Scranberry Coop) Finally the best season, aka autumn, is now upon us. People always get unfairly excited about the summer months, but in reality autumn is where the magic happens. Instead of hit and miss weather, sweating issues, holiday envy and forced BBQs everywhere, you can instead bask in the sweet scent of pumpkin, be constantly warm and cosy by a fire, and relish in all the new TV shows. There is basically nothing not to love about autumn. (Go on Taran, impress us with your [...]

Labor Day Jokes & Finding Success in the Job Market

What’s up with Easter Bunnies, Eggs, & Candy?

Photo courtesy of wallpaper.wiki. Bunnies, eggs, and candy are common sights for Easter, but some of us at Scranberry Coop wondered why these secular symbols are even associated for what is known as a Christian holiday. So we did some research, and have found some explanations for the presence of bunnies, eggs, and candy in Easter. What's up with Easter Bunnies? (according to history.com)? The exact origins of this mythical mammal are unclear, but rabbits, known to be prolific procreators, are an ancient symbol of fertility and new life. According to some sources, the Easter bunny first arrived in America [...]

Santa Claus at Scranberry Coop

Known worldwide, he's Krampus, Grandfather Frost, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, or Tompte. His companions range from moorish dwarfs to darling grandaughters, his transportation goes from goats to Stallions to grand sleighs, and his demeanor varies from punishing to saintly. Here in the USA we tend to like our Santa Claus jolly! Typically he's dressed in red, donning a thick white beard, a big belly, and a grand list of all the children who were naughty and nice. Other than an occasional lump of coal story, our Santas are kind and generous, granting wishes, eating Christmas sprinkle cookies and leaving lots [...]
