Wasn't Aware.... AND Not soo much anymore!

of how religious most are. For Kid's Lit I was just reading the Brothers Grimm Aschenputtel (Cinderella) and the mother told the daughter to be pious and pray daily. I was shocked as I didn't remember that when I used to hear them growing up.

Also that some of the people I thought were saved never really were. The symbology behind and the Older versions were more dark and the actually stories were NOT for children!

In Snow White it wasn't the prince's kiss that woke her up... she woke up after her second child with him! *yells* BASTARD! How Gross!<br />
<br />
Repunsel had twins with her prince who didn't see them until she cried in his eyes to heal them.<br />
<br />
Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother died in the end of the story... a woodcutter was added in later. The story was told to mothers to be more cautious with their daughters.

i always felt sorry for cindarella too!

I enjoyed both Cinderella and Aschenputtel.<br />
<br />
Though, Cinderella is probably the reason that I don't like books or movies with strong injustices. I get so upset for the main character and sometimes like in the case of The Count of Monte Christo... I didn't finish reading the book. <br />

I also don't like the fact that there are so many women in the world today who want their prince/a rich man to sweep them off their feet and "save them from the hardness of life" (Something a lady told me!) *shakes head*

I don't remember any religious overtones in fairytales, either. And I've read just about all of them through 3 kids and 5 grandkids!LOL
