Fun Fact of the day:
The famous nursery rhyme ‘Mary had a little lamb’ is based on a true story.
The story revolves around Mary Elizabeth Sawyer, a woman born in 1806 on a farm in Sterling, Mass. In 1815, Mary was 9-years-old. She was helping her father with farm chores when they discovered a sickly newborn lamb in the sheep pen that had been abandoned by its mother. Despite protests from her father, Mary was eventually allowed to keep it and the two formed a bond, the lamb even followed Mary to school one day. This event inspired a classmate to write a poem which eventually became the rhyme we all know today. Is it stuck in your head yet?
