End of year trivia

Just because I saw these facts over the course of today and thought you needed to know too

Did you know that "piggy banks" were a medieval invention - the everyday pottery for poor people used was called pygges.  If you had a coin or two to spare you put in a spare pygge.  Hundreds of years later when pygges had been forgotten the container for holding spare coins was still called a pygge bank.  But by that time the pygge had been forgotten and the containers were made in the shape of a pig.

And did you know that high heels were originally made for men not women
