Why is the Cinderella fairy tale so popular around the world? The story has slight variations in different countries, but essentially the story is the same wherever it is told.
The basic story goes that Cinderalla was happily living with her mother and father, when her mother sadly died. Her father remarried, and Cinderella’s new step mother and her two daughters treated Cinderella very badly. One day Cinderella was visited by a fairy godmother who cast a spell that turned Cinderella’s rags into a beautiful gown and she was able to go to the Royal Ball. At the Ball CInderalla met the Prince who immediately fell in love with her. At the stroke of midnight, Cinderalla had to leave as her beautiful gown was to turn back in to rags. The Prince tried desperately to find Cinderella but only found her missing glass slipper.
The Prince launched a search for Cinderalla and eventually found her and they married and lived happily ever after.
There are perhaps many reasons why Cinderella is so popular, it is romantic, it has drama and it has a happy ending. But perhaps one of the things that makes Cinderella so popular is that it follows a common theme of a person experiencing hard times and then over coming those hard times to enjoy success.
When you are presenting, keeping in mind the basic themes of Cinderella can really help you to develop the story of your presentation. Remember to include drama, a little romance (if possible) and show the difficulties you overcame to achieve the success.
