Folklore & School Manuscripts
of 1938


On a Sunday evening long ago all the young girls would gather. They would get one big stone and call it "Granny". They would get a lot of small stones and throw them on the big stone. The one who would hit the big stone was called the tigger. Then the girls would come and each try to get her own stone back. The girl who was the tigger would follow the girls and try to tig one of them who would then be the tigger.

I got this from
Bridget Bonner,
