    What is your favorite nursery rhyme and why?  Is there a history behind it?

    Ring around the rosies
    A pocket full of posies-
    Atishoo atishoo we all fall down.

    As a child I just liked the game of singing and twirling while holding hands with friends then falling to the ground.  Later I learned the rhyme describes the great plague of Europe. A pocket full of posy was thought to prevent infection and sneezing was a symptom before falling down to die.

    Don't think that's true actually. One of those urban myths
