Kids puzzles about vegetables and fruits
Riddle is primarily a genre of folk art, which is passed on from mouth to mouth.
A bit of history
At first it was needed in order to act as a transmitter of religious ideas and myths. Primitive people, who used an allegorical form in speech, were confident that they carefully camouflage their preparation for the hunt, if they do not call out their tools, animals, or intentions.
People were deeply convinced that everything around them has a mind and is hostile. Therefore, you need to make every effort to outwit the objects of nature, such as a river or forest, fire or rain. This requires a speech that nature cannot understand.
Much later, some peoples will even have their own kind of rituals - “evenings of mysteries”, which were held in the autumn, when the harvesting work was finished.
The elders offered little thematic riddles about flowers, vegetables, fruits, animals, man, home, natural phenomena, tools. Such entertainment was useful for the younger generation to learn the knowledge that had been gained by generations.
At the moment, the mystery has almost ceased to play a mystical or social role. Although she had no less important tasks: artistic, educational and entertaining. They are especially popular as entertainment.
