Say hello, shutterbug
Fiction, I write
what abt the most popular nursery rhymes of all times, 'Jack and Jill' which has a French (history) connection!
The roots of this child's nursery rhyme is in France and the Jack and Jill referred to are Louis XVI who was beheaded (lost his crown) followed by his Queen Marie Antoinette (who came tumbling after). The words and lyrics were made more palatable for the nursery by giving it a happy ending and has further been altered by the passage of time - the actual beheadings occurred in 1793. The first publication date for the lyrics of this nursery rhyme is 1795 which tie-in
with the history and origins
nursery rhymes are gruesome and they teach this to kids!!!
Damn. I knew education was misleading, but I didnt know that started so early.

appetite for them altogether i dont think my children are going to
be exposed to ghastly history so early.
