Have you ever wondered how Cinderella could have walked in a glass slipper?

The story of Cinderella was passed along orally for centuries before it
was written down by Charles Perrault in 1697. While doing so he mis-
took the word vair, meaning ermine, for the word verre, meaning glass.
By the time he realized his mistake, the story had become too popular
to change, and so instead of an ermine slipper, Cinderella wore glass.
