Nursery rhymes and fairy tales depict the culture, lifestyle of the society, etx. of the times. Upon doing research on the Great Influenza epidemic of
1918-1919 (the Spanish Flu), I found that more people died in one year compaired to the Black Plague of Europe which took four years for same ratio of
deaths. The children during the Spanish flu in America jumped rope and sang a song..."I had a little bird....And Enza was it's name....I opened up
the _..And In-flu-Enza!). Very frightful, but interesting.
