Glass Slippers and Love
Wouldn't this make a fun Google search--why was a glass slipper, versus a wooden slipper marble slipper, gold, or clay slipper, chosen by Perrault in 1697, to identify one's true love?
My thought: Is love transparent?
Symbolism is fascinating. I'd like to hear from you why you think glass was chosen. No fair doing a Google search first!
