St. Patrick’s Day Traditions – Yes or No?

As we approach St. Patrick’s Day, you may be aware of a number of holiday traditions. This associate of Scranberry Coop is here to give a thumbs up or a thumbs down to four such traditions. & as a disclaimer, this is 100% my opinion & you can judge for yourself how you would like to proceed with your festivities. Just know that there is at least some rationale to my opinions, so I would encourage you to read further:

Parades – Yes, but not in New York City.

Why President’s Day?

If you noticed that a lot of federal services & businesses were shut down this past Monday, this associate at Scranberry Coop would like to remind you that yes, it was indeed President’s Day.

Which is fine, but even from my youth, this day feels like a placeholder way to give people a three day weekend.

According to the […]

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 infallible […]

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 […]
