Little Red Riding Hood

secretsoftheserpent

Everyone has heard the story Little Red Riding Hood, but no one knows what symbolism is trying to say.  Everyone tries to say it has to do with natural cycles, puberty rites, erotic or romantic, and I have even seen where people say it has to do with rape.  All wrong.  Little Red Riding Hood came from Little Red Cap and it was a folklore, which means it was told verbally for thousands of years.  As a story told verbally it probably did have to do with the culture and traditions of the people who were telling it.  Once it was written down by Charles Perrault it had a whole new meaning.  This is why the Brothers Grimm had to write a version too.
