hansel & gretel

it’s the season for gingerbread houses & the fun of decorating them / i associate the gingerbread house with hansel & gretel which is my favorite fairy tale \ as a child, i was impressed with hansel’s ingenuity of leaving behind those white pebbles so he & his sister could trace their way back home / i was impressed by his quick mindedness in outwitting the witch by holding out a chicken bone instead of his finger, as she checked his progress in fattening up \ i sympathized with & feared for gretel / i was impressed by her bravery in killing the witch \ i was very bothered & angered by the murderous parents while at the same time afraid that adults could & would actually do this to children / what kind of father & mother would abandon their children in the woods, to be left in the cold & eaten by animals? 162 more words
