I never know about “Ring Around the Rosie” until I saw a documentary on the Black Death.

Actually, the Black Death connection has been pretty much been de-bunked - that ‘theory’ first showed up in the 50s..

An Olde English “Round” sone, it exisits in many different cultures.

Do a search, you may be surprised... at the number of different cultures, with no ties to Brittian, that have the song in one form or another - and the many variations as well.

Thank you for reading the posts.
